Artist Profile: Erin Rothstein

In her newest series Tasting Room, Montreal-born, Toronto-based painter Erin Rothstein captures indulgence and desire in high realism. The Tasting Room Series, my latest still-life endeavor, was inspired by my passion for food – how it tastes, how it is presented, and how our relationship with food is cultivated. I wanted to take culinary aesthetics to new heights [...]

Artist Profile: Patti Normand

When I walked into the gallery Monday morning I immediately gravitated to the newest arrivals: Patti Normand‘s playful sculptures. These nostalgic and witty works have played in my mind all week. On the surface the miniature worlds I create seem safe, but look closer and it becomes apparent all is not as it seems. The settings [...]

Artist Profile: Peter Andrew

Peter Andrew‘s photographs are often shot from obscure places or points of view. Whether in a remote area of Iceland, or outside a helicopter capturing a highway below, these vast, unpopulated scenes are always cinematic. Peter Andrew is an award-winning photographer from Toronto, Canada.

 Self-taught and armed with an apprenticeship at West Side Studio under [...]

Artist Profile: Brent Orr

To me, Brent Orr’s work  recalls spaghetti westerns like The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: cinematic, sun-bleached  and serious. After speaking to Orr about his process, a more personal and nostalgic narrative emerges, but one that nevertheless remains enigmatic. Working with photography, I’m exploring the reflections of a past, closely connected to my upbringing on a [...]

Artist Profile: Amy Friend

Amy Friend is the newest addition to the roster of artists at Art Interiors. Her ethereal series titled Vestiges captures movement in a romantic light, as she transforms garments into suspended abstract forms. In my work I deal with the concepts of time, memory, impermanence, and phenomenology. I employ materials and surroundings that are familiar to me using them as starting points [...]

Client/Artist Profile: Francisco Gomez in context

Here is one vignette from Joanna Track‘s lofty home, where I spent the afternoon documenting her collection of art. Interior designer Teresa Track arranged nine of Francisco Gomez‘s floral works on mylar in a dreamy, airy grouping in the dining room. Their overall minimal composition, combined with the white box frames, accentuates the calmness of the [...]

Artist Profile/Staff Spaces: Lisa commissions Erin Vincent

My husband David was turning 40, and what to get for him was proving a challenge at best, so I looked to Erin Vincent for help. I thought of 10 of his favorite things: from an Alpha Romeo to Mike and Ikes candy, and then sent the list off to Erin to do what she does [...]

Artist Profile: David Trautrimas

David Trautrimas‘ newest series of austere photographs, The Spyfrost Project, have left me awestruck. A pastiche of pieced-together landscapes serve as a backdrop to dismembered appliances, which dominate a deserted scene. Though there are hints of familiarity (of Canadian scenery and household objects), these works leave the viewer with an overall sense of disorientation and [...]
