HARD as SOFT Evan Broens and Perring Grauer Opening Reception: Friday, November 29, 2013 7-11p Exhibition Runs: November 29 - December 13, 2013 https://www.facebook.com/events/610510328985069/
Hard as Soft brings together Vancouver-based visual artists Evan Broens and Perrin Grauer to the Dynamo Arts Association project space, exhibiting their respective practices and methodological commonalities. The conceptual framework for this exhibition stems from the title Hard as Soft, wherein their work seeks to create a resonance between the cold non-representational line and the sincere caressing curve. Material is also inherent to the conceptual mandate of this exhibition, where both artists respect the relationship between material and form, and seek to develop and demonstrate a sensitivity to non-representational work. Hard as Soft addresses the potential need to have things in the world that are not readily definable, and to articulate this obliqueness in a way that beckons rather than repels. Perrin Grauer graduated from the BFA Program at UBC in 2010. He has exhibited his drawings, paintings and performance works across Canada, and is included in several private collections. This group exhibition presents as selection of works from the last year of studio practice. Evan Broens completed his studies in Sculpture at the Alberta College of Art & Design in 2005. He has exhibited both nationally and internationally, and most recently at the Trench Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver. Broens has received provincial grants and awards, and is included in private collections. Last year he was artist in residence at DRAWinternational Residency in southern France and this fall participated in “Another World in the Studio” thematic residency at the Banff Centre. email: info@dynamoarts.org for additional information or to schedule a privet visit.

Please Join us Friday, November 8, 2013 7-11PM for the opening reception of SEARCHING FOR LAND, a site specific installation featuring new works by Jenny Heishman (Seattle, WA) & Kitsum Cheng (Frankfurt, Germany). Jenny Heishman will be in attendance for the opening, as well as be present the following afternoon to speak about her work. 
Jenny and Kitsum entered into a long distance correspondence that spanned several months with the aim to explore their respective studio practices and identify parcels of common ground. in the volleyed exchanges, constructed narratives and personal anecdotes drove their connection, and such engaged and earnest coactions are reflected in their latest works. interpreted through sculpture and video the project roots in a basic exploration… how do we see more similarities with those around us? Searching for Land is the reflection of one such coordinated search.
‘We did not come directly at each other. in our many correspondences, we have shared the same grounds and described to each other what is behind us, and what is facing us in our sculptural practice as well as everyday life. if we were two dots, immersed in the same thing, say a die, then we would be dots set on different planes. in this sense, we are a part of a number –a greater whole. This exhibition might map our shared tendencies - or rather our tendencies in trying to understand what drives us. Two dots seen at once in a three dimensional space: a parabola’ – Kitsum Cheng
Searching for Land marks the first Vancouver exhibition for both artists.
