The Latcham Gallery is pleased to announce Precision Cuts a two-person exhibition featuring recent sculptures by Alan Hasselfeldt and new paintings by Judith Livingston on view from February 19 until March 26, 2011.
Working separately, Hasselfeldt explores natural rock formations in his recent sculptures, whereas Livingston incorporates the tissues of designer sewing patterns into new paintings of rockscapes. When brought together, the two bodies of work explore collectively the dramatic forces of nature that alter the geological complexion of our country over the vastness of time. The artists uncover the continual "re-designing" of natural landforms with a near-surgical precision.
Alan Hasselfeldt is an artist based in Thornhill. While Hasselfeldt is mostly self-taught, numerous courses in Toronto area institutions, as well as classes and workshops conducted by several well-known sculptors, augmented his talent. Hasselfeldt has studied the faceting of gemstones and pottery, however his passion has always been stone sculpture. Previously Hasselfeldt has shown at the Scarborough Art Guild, the Thornhill Heintzman House Invitational Art Show, and the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinburg, Ontario.
Judith Livingston is a recipient of The Canada 125 Medal by The Government of Canada, is a Member of The Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour and a Life Member of The Frederick Horsman Varley Art Gallery of Markham. Her paintings have been exhibited nationally and internationally. Livingston is based in Unionville and teaches at the Varley Art Gallery in Markham, Ontario.
This exhibition is supported by the Ontario Arts Council, the Town of Witchurch-Stouffville, and Pace Credit Union.
