The Artist Project celebrates its 10th year with another exciting show from February 23 to 26, 2017 at the Better Living Centre located at Toronto’s Exhibition Place. From collectors and curators, to gallerists and designers, visitors can explore and discover works of art from over 250 top contemporary artists from Canada and abroad. This is a unique opportunity to meet and buy art directly from artists at Toronto’s favourite art fair.
For many of us, nature is an endless source of rejuvenation. A place of peace we can escape to when the reality of the modern world get to be too overwhelming. A place that recharges us, alights our senses, ignites our imagination and gives us the energy to dive back in. Why wouldn’t you try and emulate some of that majesty and wonder in your own home? In the latest projects I tried to bring some of the power and beauty of nature into the house:
The ability to bring nature into your home has been an ambition that humans have strived for over the centuries. We love the natural and organic appeal of elements that makes us feel calm, at peace and above all welcomed into a space.
From the bark of a tree to the soft feel of grass underfoot to the sturdiness of a rock wall, nature is full of textures, and those textures can be explored in your home. Give your senses something to grab a hold to so you can revisit nature’s textures in your home anytime you’d like.
The more we get involved with technology, the more people want to surround themselves with the textures, colors, and patterns of nature.
Wood wall art will help you feel closer to nature and add an organic touch. Admit it, exotic things excite and attract us!
“One of the most striking qualities of contemporary art is its ability to shock, outrage, and provoke its audience.”
Imagine your interior environment enhanced with the power and beauty of nature inspired art. Unique wood wall sculpture will set a ton, create an atmosphere, reflect a business aspiration and create a sense of corporate identity in the workplace.
“Artemano, a decade-old Quebec company that sells ethically- and sustainably-sourced furnishings. Owners Shimon Finkelstein and Eyal Shoam source handmade wood products in South and Southeast Asia and ship them to Canada for a final tweak to suit a Western design aesthetic. The resulting pieces, which highlight the wood’s grain, knots and indentations, are rustic, exotic and have minimalist shapes that belong in modern homes”. (Toronto Life)
Renewal and regeneration are pillars of the Artemano philosophy. On a constant search for new ways to reveal the timeless beauty of old wood, Artemano rescues the wood from old Indonesian fishing boats, railway ties – or sleepers – from India, old construction wood from Thailand, as well as salvaged drift wood and storm-felled trees. Furniture crafted from reclaimed wood is steeped in history and character, breathing new life into the old. And the cycle continues.
One more commission completed! This one was a strugle to get perfect, but it’s done!
Highly distinctive contemporary wood wall sculptures designed and created as abstract compositions with rhythmical and repetative assemblage pattern with richly textured surfaces that are delicately colored with acrylic.
