Bad Geometry is an exhibition of new works by Adrienne Crossman, Brianna Lowe, Lauren Pelc-McArthur and Tobias Williams.
Adrienne Crossman is an artist, educator, and curator. Her practice involves the exploration of non-normative and non-binary objects, characters and spaces, with a specific interest in queer potentialities within the non-human. Crossman creates queer interventions through the manipulation of digital media and popular culture, the re-contextualization of often-overlooked objects and artifacts, and by locating queer sensibilities in the everyday. Adrienne is currently an MFA candidate in Studio Art at the University of Windsor.
Brianna Lowe is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in Toronto. Her practice explores the different interpretations of how the environment is experienced through the mediation of various digital media, such as 3D animation, digital collage, and video. She has exhibited in Canada, the Netherlands, and the United States, as well as virtually through The Wrong Digital Art Biennial. She currently holds a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from OCAD University and a Post Graduate Certificate in Video Game Design from George Brown College. She has worked as an artist assistant for a number of prominent Canadian artists, most notably Jon Rafman and Alex Macleod.
Lauren Pelc-McArthur is an emerging visual artist from Toronto currently based in Montreal. Through painting and digital imaging, she responds to agitations between painting and screen culture. Her new work alludes to scenes of modern age boredom altered through a lens of mark-making influenced by screens and painterly tactics. Pelc-McArthur has shown her work internationally. She has participated in residencies in Canada, abroad and online. She has received several awards including grants from the Ontario Arts Council and the Toronto Arts Council. Pelc-McArthur is an MFA Candidate at Concordia University.
Tobias Williams is a Toronto based visual artist and educator. His art practice is concerned with the historical and contemporary relationship between art, society, and technology. His recent work has been exploring the concept of “Digital Ontology;” how we conceive of objects in digital spaces and how these digital objects interact with and change our perception of the physical world. Tobias has shown work in exhibitions locally and internationally, recent exhibitions include “Vistas” at the Banff Centre for the Arts, “Genuflexion” at Creamy gallery in Chicago and “Unkempt” at MAW GURU in Manhattan. He currently works as an instructor at OCADU and Humber College in Toronto.
