Saturday, June 23, 2012 to Friday, August 3, 2012

In the State of Flux Gallery, Michèle LaRose (Kingston, ON) presents a series of new paintings in a non-representational idiom experimenting with the use of a palette restricted primarily to the colour of white.

I Can Only Make It Up Once

Friday, October 12, 2012 to Saturday, November 24, 2012

Modern Fuel presents, in its State of Flux Gallery, a new installation of work and a performance by Kingston artist Lisa Figge titled I Can Only Make It Up Once. Exploring disability as a location of knowledge, Figge makes artworks such as experimental video and puppets to renegotiate the terms of living in a body that is no longer able-bodied. She is making artwork about how it feels to be in a differently mobile body.

Take Note

Saturday, August 18, 2012 to Sunday, September 9, 2012

Modern Fuel presents, in its State of Flux Gallery, a new installation titled Take Note, curated by Don Maynard (Kingston, ON).

Edgewise

Saturday, May 5, 2012 to Saturday, June 9, 2012

Modern Fuel presents, in its State of Flux Gallery, a new installation of paintings by Ann Clarke (Thunder Bay, ON) entitled Edgewise. The focus of her current work is painting as painting, the picture plane, space and colour. Opaque and transparent images are layered, and reflections on the dichotomies of nature/nurture, sacred /profane, organic/manufactured, past/present, and wild/tame, are explored. Memory and cross-cultural influences also play a significant role.

Solar Flares and Spires

Reception with the artist in attendance: Saturday 1 October 2011 @7pm

Modern Fuel presents, in its State of Flux Gallery, a new series of drawings by Michael Amar entitled Solar Flares and Spires. Amar states that the images are about “faith in science and religion.” In them, the spires symbolize religious traditions while the solar flares represent the scientific search for meaning, as light symbolizes an ability to “see.” The realm of reason and the incomprehensible converge at a crossroads in these drawings.

New Works by Ulrich Panzer

In the State of Flux Gallery, Ulrich Panzer (Gananoque, ON) presents a series of new works experimenting with acrylic and acrylic inks on mylar. These works deal less with formal aesthetic questions, but rather consider the role of memory, projection, and personal experience in the reception of the paintings. The artist will be present at the opening reception on August 6 at Modern Fuel at 7pm. Image: Ulrich Panzer, Untitled 12 (detail), 2011.

Morning Glory: Works in Progress

Modern Fuel presents, in its State of Flux Gallery, Kate Yüksel’s new series of photographs, Morning Glory: Works in Progress. This body of work examines private moments in domestic settings where weakness and fragility are revealed. Yüksel’s photographs contrast the tender and beautiful as well as the raw and vulnerable.
