Exhibition Description

Textile patterns deconstructed to reveal single lines that trace points of intersection between a thread and a surface.

Manipulating photographs of her own textile work, Lizz Aston expands upon these predetermined patterns. By altering line, shape, volume, repetition and scale she deconstructs these formal patterns in unexpected ways, creating a body of prints and three-dimensional, large scale works.

Noelle Hamlyn is intrigued by the possibilities of textures and fibres to evoke emotion. Believing our sense of touch is one of the most powerful and profound vehicles of human understanding, she is drawn to materials with strong tactile qualities and uses these as metaphors to explore experience.

Taking imagery from Victorian dinnerware and narrative-themed plates, Pam Lobb uses monoprints on fine Japanese papers, combined with fabric, to create layered porcelain-like sculptures. Lace and crochet work are moulded between layers of paper, revealing their texture and emphasizing the intricacy of the patterns

Telephone Booth Gallery's primary focus is on the promotion of emerging Canadian artists that express a sense of integrity and innovation in their critical art practice. The gallery also exhibits senior and mid-career artists along with selected contemporary fine craftspeople and designers. The gallery is located in the Junction, a bourgeoning west end Toronto neighbourhood. The gallery opened its doors in September 2010 and is named after its mascot - a vintage 1950's Bell Canada telephone booth prominently displayed in the gallery's front window.
