Matthew Varey - Curriculum Vitae - Artist Statement

Matthew Varey was born in Hamilton in 1968 and graduated from McMaster University’s Visual Art program in 1992. Varey’s work has evolved over the years from large works containing figurative elements with a focus on the physical surface, surrounding themes of protest, towards a combination of abstraction and colour photography. This prolific artist continues to explore abstraction in his current body of work maintaining similar themes of visual texture, vivid colour and the use of various perspectives simultaneously. Varey had his first international solo exhibition in Europe in 1995 and has since exhibited at the Fondazione Bevilacqua la Masa in Venice, Art Cologne, Art Miami and the Toronto International Art Fair, as well as galleries in Greece and across Canada. His work is held in corporate and private collections in the United States, Korea, England, Spain, Greece, Germany and Canada. Varey lives and works in Toronto.

Jesse Bromm - Curriculum Vitae

Jesse Bromm graduated from Sheridan College - Crafts and Design: Glass Program in 2010. Bromm’s work reflects his inner discomfort and perception of the outside world. He creates miniature dioramas of human behaviour that address these concerns. Figures are tangible and relatable, but the found objects are hidden; mediated by the glass’s quality to distort. The glass becomes a metaphor for our altered perception of reality. Bromm has exhibited across Canada and in the United States. He was accepted into Harbourfront Centre’s artist-in-residency programme and awarded a scholarship in 2011.
