since there are few springtime activities as lovely and relaxing as wandering along queen street dodging in and out of galleries, here are a couple of exhibitions worth checking out along the west queen west strip:
at the angell gallery, an exhibition by kineko ivic of monsters-from-childhood type paintings. you can view them on line, but you lose the textural element that makes them so appealing. (see image to the right.)
and at the clint roenisch gallery, a little further west on the strip, there is a stunning exhibit of photography by jack burman, entitled chaos shimmers (through the veil of order). his juxtaposed images of human remains (note: not for the faint of heart or stomach), stark and uncompromising alongside images of baroque cathedrals so detailed they're painful to look at for too long are remarkable. they have an almost physical effect when you see them, particularly given their considerable size.
