Wall Space Gallery is excited to host All Things Considered, a co-solo exhibition featuring the work of Toronto artists Richard Ahnert and Silvia Taylor.
Richard Ahnert takes anthropomorphic painting to a new level, lacing it with a quiet, yet unmistakable animism– an abiding kinship between human and animal. He uses the relationship between animals and humans to explore themes of emotion, metaphor, and narrative with a satirical twist. Storytelling, understated humour, and deep reflection are at the heart of his practice.
Silvia Taylor speaks to her work saying, “My objective, through the use of sculptural forms, is to evoke the spirit of ancient eras and natural realms.
I am infatuated with psychology and eastern philosophy. Through this fascination I have been led to believe that perhaps the most fundamental and challenging part of life is to attain self-awareness and find our true, unique paths to fulfillment.
Working intuitively, I refer to prehistoric tools to create metaphorical devices that might help in the process of finding balance, center, and direction along our individually carved journeys.”
