CASTED Tickets
Jan 20 – Feb 1 all-day

CASTED
Artists: Kristen Elizabeth Donoghue-Stanford, Rebecca Garcia Echeverria, Allison Helen Garrity, and Esther Min-Ji Kim
Medium: Sculpture (Bronze)
Location: Eleanor Winters Art Gallery (129 Winters College)
Dates: January 20th – February 1st, 2020
Reception: Tuesday, January 21st, 2020 6:00pm – 8:00pm

CASTED is a sculpture exhibition fully dedicated to works produced in bronze. The four artists, Kristen Elizabeth Donoghue-Stanford, Rebecca Garcia Echeverria, Allison Helen Garrity, and Esther Min-Ji Kim curated a collection of their separate works to create this group exhibition. 

The four women artists have showcased in CASTED an exhibition in bronze; a historically male associated material. As four female artists, they navigate the conventions of this medium in order to wield it to their individual  artistic practices and challenge the associations of materiality in relation to creation and process. 

In an exploration of this materiality, themes are crossed, met, and distanced with one another. Between the works of the four artists, a conversation is opened on the significance of bronze and its impact upon object and permanence. In choosing to cast in bronze, the artists subject themselves to be represented in their work, calling into question immortalization and monumentality of self.

In representations of the body, of memory, of empowerment, and of self the artists invite viewers to cast opinions and inferences of their own upon the works.

ARTIST BIOS

Kristen Elizabeth Donoghue-Stanford is a sculpture artist currently in her final year of her Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours Degree in Visual Arts (Studio) at York University in Toronto, Ontario. Her work focuses upon the themes of femininity, gender dichotomy, and on connections between the past and present as is expressed through the processes of bronze casting, metal fabrication, installation, textile and mixed media arts. 

Rebecca Garcia Echeverria is in her final year of the BFA Honours Degree at York University. She is a First-Generation Canadian-Salvadoran exploring the reconstruction of her memories, identity, and self through means of process based art forms that include metal fabrication, bronze-casting, and film photography.  She recently won a place  in the 2019 Graduate showcase at Gallery 1313 along with the AGYU Best in Show Award for her work “Self-Portrait (Camera) which is currently on display in CASTED.

Allison Helen Garrity often considers herself to be a part of the art that she creates. The process of constructing her thoughts into the physical universe fuses together the tangible and intangible parts of her. She is a  21-year-old Canadian artist, currently in her 4th and final year in the Visual Arts program at York University. She is a prop maker, sculptor, artist and a seeker of exploration. Her work is focused around a variety of materials and processes of the Foundry, Metal working and patterning. As she explores her desire for playfulness, she invite ideas unbound by the adult self, Dissociating assumptions on gender, life and time.

Esther Min-Ji Kim is a Canadian born Korean artist currently in her 5th year at York University majoring in Visual Arts (Studio). She explores concepts of the body through sculptural forms, utilizing her practices of metal fabrication, foundry, mould making and the contrast in medium and scale to evoke ambiguity in a tangible form. Inspired by thoughtful investigation of philosophies of the mind and its relation to the body, her work challenges the viewer’s commonly held assumptions about the world. She opens possibilities for interpretation, instigating cognitive and bodily awareness of the viewer’s subjective self.

Cassandra Tremblay presents Learning to Grow Tickets
Jan 20 @ 10:00 am – Jan 30 @ 3:30 pm

Learning to Grow

Artist: Cassandra Tremblay (3rd Year)

Medium: Printmaking (monoprints, intaglio, screen)

Location: Special Projects Gallery (102 Joan & Martin Goldfarb Centre for Fine Arts)

Dates: January 20-30, 2020

Closing Reception: Wednesday, January 29th @ 2:00pm – 3:30pm

Artist’s Statement:
My work in this series explores the motif of individual growth and the mental challenges, doubt, and confusion that comes with it. Often, the idea of success is romanticized, and we believe that people are simply talented, or just plain lucky. In reality, success is years of hard work, dedication, discipline, and practice. When people see this series, I want them to be reminded that everyone goes through the struggles of learning and chasing their idea of success, but most importantly, that it takes a long time, and this time is just as important as when you finally are an expert. The medium of monoprinting comes into play when thinking about our ever changing perspective. It also highlights the elements of randomness, surprise, and serendipity that we encounter in our lives through the process of physically printing the piece. Each unique print not only represents the growth of learning, but my own artistic journey and the discovery of my passion.

Artist’s bio:
Cassandra Tremblay has been creating art since she could remember. Currently she is in her third year of study at York University and has taken an interest in printmaking, especially monoprinting as it combines painting and drawing with a larger, and more involved, process. Striving for perfection is something she has always struggled with, so this show is a way of working through that while also reminding others that there is beauty in struggling.
