Lonsdale Gallery, Toronto  July 6 - August 11
Pneumatics features Joan Kaufman’s photography alongside the impossibly airy thread sculptures of Amanda McCavour, woven and wire-lace collograph interpretations of the flight patterns of starlings by Meghan Price, selections from Peggy Taylor Reid’s Scorched series (photographs of smoldering birds nests), and paintings by Katherine Mann whose balance of roiling negative space and finely detailed illustrative linework recalls eddies of wind.  All of the artworks on view are products of lengthy, painstaking engagement.  Whether relating to the invisible dynamics of air, to birds and flight, or parachutes, the commonality lies in the invisible energy invested into their creation.  These are carefully rendered, sophisticated works.  A close look will yield a gale-force impact.
