Show dates: October 12 – 28
Artist Reception: Friday, October 12, 6-8pm
WALL SPACE GALLERY + FRAMING is proud to announce the co-solo exhibitions of Toronto’s Manny Trinh and Ottawa’s own Olivia Johnston. In their respective SAIGONIA and TREASURES, each artist examines the colourful, contradicting, and often ephemeral nature of the items and buildings we associate with meanings of “home”.
The architectural abstractions of Toronto painter Manny Trinh set out to represent the chaotic yet thriving order of his hometown Saigon City, Vietnam. Through precise lines and sweeping, inky colours, Trinh combines the multi-faceted components of what builds homes, communities, and families.
The lens based work of Ottawa artist Olivia Johnston speaks to the cathartic and enduring effects collecting has had on her personal and artistic psyche, expressing her layered relationship with kept objects through physical collage that she has then captured through the use of a scanner.
Please join us the evening of Friday, October 12th from 6-8pm to toast both the artists, meet and greet with Manny and Olivia, and celebrate the contemporary art community here in Canada.
