Workshop Exploring Natural Dyes with Tania Love

Tania Love’s exhibition the space between presents a collection of subtle paintings and amorphous graphite drawings that emerged from observing the momentary interplay of light and shadow.

In the inception of this collection, Love’s attention was drawn to the primary entities of the sun and moon, both constant and cyclical. Our perception and experience of these same orbs that rise, set, eclipse, cast shadows and beams of light, changes and is relative to our position on the earth in time. Love’s work explores these liminal, impermanent, abstracted shifts and the quiet awareness that emerges from this space. Her exhibition is an invitation into nuanced perspectives.

Presented in conjunction with the DesignTO Festival.

Tania Love is a Toronto-based visual artist whose work evolves from a relationship with the natural and cultural habitat. Her process centred use of diverse natural materials places emphasis on tactility and invites slower rhythms. She is the recipient of numerous grants and residencies and has exhibited both within Canada and internationally. During last year’s DesignTO Festival, Love was recognized with a ‘Best In Festival: Exhibition’ award for the collaborative project “mémoire”.

The Lyceum Gallery is a contemporary Canadian art gallery located in a light-filled space on Queen Street West, across from Trinity Bellwoods Park. A reinterpretation of the traditional gallery concept, The Lyceum Gallery is a creative hub for an array of artistic disciplines and a nexus point for community collaboration and is co-located with The Orchard Lyceum school.

DesignTO Festival, Canada’s leading and largest annual design festival that celebrates design as a multidisciplinary form of creative thinking and making, with 100+ free exhibitions and events forming Toronto’s design week every January.
