Sara Pearce at 1305 Gallery

29 March-21 April 2013

The titles of Sara Pearce’s collages have clever, wordy titles and are sensitive to historic notions and objects. They point out our cultural fallacies and explore contemporary and historical notions of gender, equality, and the battle of the sexes.

Troy Dugas at Arthur Roger Gallery

2 March-20 April 2013

The intricate, large-scale cut paper assemblages in “The Shape of Relics” are created from unused product labels that artist Troy
Dugas collects. The shredded or cut source material is meticulously arranged to create compositions that appear woven. The purpose of the original label is obscured through the use of repetition, pattern, symmetry, precision and scale. New meaning is created by the reinterpretation of colour, shape and line.
