The COVID Years
September 2 – 30, 2022
YAAW artist Marie-Hélène Comeau and Toronto artist Jungle Ling have teamed up to present an exhibit in our solo gallery that revisits the COVID years from two different points of view.
The North: Marie-Hélène Comeau’s paintings explore the irony of feeling trapped in a small living space, a home filled with fears and concerns, while living in a vast northern territory.
The South: Jungle Ling’s work is inspired by his personal art journal that he nourished during the last two years. The artist spent a lot of time drawing people or places he visited or observed in Toronto during the COVID pandemic.
While the two artists have worked together on projects in various parts of Canada, this is the first time they will be presenting their paintings together in an exhibit. They are using this artistic opportunity to reflect on these past few strange years, comparing and contrasting experiences in two very different settings and connecting the dots from North to South.
There will be an opening reception with refreshments on Friday Sept. 2nd from 5 pm to 8 pm. Everyone is welcome.
