Works in Toronto Canada

PORTFOLIO (1)
BIO
Tosca has been working with metal and computers for over the past 15 years.
Striving to integrate the two within her jewellery and sculptural objects, her current work explores this integration through a combination of wire frame constructions, hollow forms, shape memory alloys, silicone, sound chips, proximity sensors, sonic distortions, and 3D scans.
By employing that which may be real or imagined (virtual) she is suggesting a believable structure yet one not necessarily rational. The thought forms depicted within this new series work through the implications of surveillance, gestation (genome, cloning), and fruition (what is our future?), searching for some kind of symbolic release. Her intention is to produce original pieces for particular times and situations with a view to building up a small yet versatile catalogue of environmental interactive sculpture (installations) suited for a wide variety of moods and atmospheres.

DISCUSSION

what's *new*?


*new* is not just a gallery.
It is a forum devoted to the investigation of the relationship between visual art, the artists and the audience.
*new* exhibitions will be presented to the public in accordance with new, varied and dynamic exhibition formats that focus not only on the actual work, but also on the underlying production processes. It is not so much our intention to feature work that embrace these aspects
in their artisan context, but rather to search their artistic
merit. To this end, we shall focus not only on the visual
aspect, but also explore all new exhibition formats.

*new* will open spring 2003, case goods building, distillery
district, parliament and front streets, toronto.

*new* is open to interpretation and invites artists to submit
proposals for 2003/2004.
