Launching our 2007 fall exhibition season, Newzones is proud to present fuzz - a group exhibition of five of Canada's leading female abstract painters. Exploring the world of contemporary abstraction, fuzz offers an alternate, girly glimpse into current painting practices.
As part of our exploration, fuzz will showcase painters at different points in their careers. Recently nominated for the prestigious RBC Canadian Painting Competition, a forum celebrating up-and-coming visual artists, Rdest's paintings are fresh and funky and encapsulate the spirit of the New Canadian Abstraction movement. Also an emerging painter, Goldman's paintings are raw and thick and demonstrate pure painting from an intuitive mind.
Also included in fuzz are mid-career artists Kubis and Dionne who created atmospheric environments populated by fuzzy shapes or dive-bombing halos. And rounding out our fab five is Saskatoon-based Marie Lannoo. Well known for her dazzling, glowing colour fields, Lannoo's work are luminescent anchors in painting exhibition accentuated by feminine sensibilities.
