General Hardware Contemporary is pleased to present emerging artist Stanzie Tooth’s first solo exhibition in Toronto.
The woods are a touchstone in Stanzie Tooth’s painting practice. In her forests, myriad figures both human and animal are partially subsumed or wholly reclaimed by the ecological cycle of growth and decay—they are painted in a flourish of gestures, shattered into refracted light and saturated with the fecund shadows of undergrowth. Like her ephemeral figures drawn from historical and contemporary visual culture, Stanzie Tooth’s landscapes are unpredictable… allegorical. When looking at her work, there is no escaping folklore.
Stanzie Tooth is a Toronto based artist. Tooth received her BFA in Drawing and Painting from OCAD in 2007 with an award for excellence in painting. In 2012 Stanzie’s work was included in “60 Painters” at Humber College, an ambitious overview of contemporary Canadian painting. In the fall 2013 Tooth will begin her Masters of Fine Arts at the University of Ottawa where she was awarded a full scholarship.
