MKG127 is pleased to present Never Odd or Even,
October 16 - November 13, 2010
an exhibition of new work by Toronto based artist Roula Partheniou.
For her second solo exhibition at MKG127, Roula Partheniou presents a new series of objects that range from the vaguely to the eerily familiar. Continuing her interest in material game-playing and the double-take, she reinterprets the replica with several degrees of verisimilitude. Through the use of material puns, colour cues, visual similes, trompe l'oeil and reductive referents, Partheniou deconstructs the familiar, creating a multi-layered tangle of perception and knowledge.
Roula Partheniouís work is marked by a concern for marriage of material and form and is drawn together by a strong sense of both logic and play. Recent exhibitions include Circular Logic at Cambridge Galleries, Cambridge; Remakes at YYZ Artistís Outlet, Toronto; a collaboration with Micah Lexier titled Works, Works 1, Twice for *Queen Specific, Toronto. Recent group and two-person shows include A to B at MKG127, Toronto; Literally at Artspeak, Vancouver; Fall In/Out at Blackwood Gallery, Mississauga; Infinite Egress at Surrey Art Gallery, Surrey; The Form Itself at Priska C. Juschka Fine Art, New York and an upcoming show at Truck Gallery, Calgary. Further examples of her work can be seen at www.roulapartheniou.com.
The exhibition continues until November 13, 2010.
MKG127 is located in Toronto at 1445 Dundas St. West between Dufferin St. and Gladstone Ave.
Hours are Wednesday to Saturday from 12 to 6 PM or by appointment.
