Recent Work by Leslie Thompson

What is it about the view that is so mesmerizing? The street below holds both the cat's and my attention for what seems like long stretches of time.

In 2012 I began to photograph the streetscape in my downtown Toronto neighbourhood from a fixed vantage point- my attic window. The images presented in this exhibition are a small selection of the photographs in this series. The subject, a residential urban street, is framed by the open window at all times of the day and night and in every season. This intersection is neither a landmark nor an icon. Its significance lies in the subtle changes and the flow of time that the image records.
There is a history of artists repeatedly photographing from their studio windows (e.g. Josef Sudek) or from their front porches (e.g. Richard Misrach). Sometimes the images document a moment of spectacular cloud formations; sometimes the artist is simply the observer of small changes or subtle transformations of their own environment. For "My Local" it is precisely the contextual ordinariness of the window frame and street that transforms the shadow of man crossing the street, or a tree in bloom into an energizing and sometimes a sublime event as time stretches. This is a series. It is on-going. (Leslie Thompson)

Claw Script by Holly Lee

In the Chinese philosophical anthology Huainazi (139 B.C.), it says that "in ancient times, when Cang Jie invented writing, Heaven rained down millet and ghosts wailed at night". People felt blessed and cursed at the same time, seeing that writing had a certain power over them. China's first writing system - known as the Oracle Bone Inscriptions, was made up of characters inscribed on turtle shells and animal bones. First discovered and unearthed in the late 19th Century, the inscriptions consist primarily of records made during divinations, sacrificial hunting, wars or natural disasters.

Chinese writing has continued to evolve. The characters' unique, formal beauty developed into a highly distilled art form - Chinese calligraphy. It is through a revision of the origin of Chinese writing that I've come to fully aware of the history, beauty and the cultural significance of calligraphy.

This mini series of new work did not happen by chance. When I saw the scratches on the floor, many of them made by Suki, my cat, they conveyed a familiar and strong feeling, almost with aesthetic qualities parallel to the Bone Script. In a way, Suki expresses his feeling of anxiety, curiosity and perhaps even joy and pain through these incredible markings. The Claw Script series, as I entitled this work, serves as my playful response and tribute to the archaic, sophisticated and spellbinding Oracle Bone Script. (Holly Lee)
