Who Are We? Seeking Answers to the Big Questions--from the archives


Another collage from my archives (read: under the basement stairs). I can't pinpoint the exact date of this one, but it seems the coupon for TastiTaters on the back expired in July of 1998. Another 40 cents down the drain.

Don't Think Too Hard--From the Archives

From April 2000, another collage from an old bundle uncovered while packing. I did quite a number of these, mostly cut from the Ottawa Citizen or the National Post. I usually made them when I couldn't sleep. I got a big kick out of linking random sentences. When we were kids, my siblings and I would turn the sound down on the TV and turn up the sound on an unrelated radio program and laugh hysterically at the incongruity. We made our own fun.

Sketch 2010


This was my donation to Sketch, the art auction for Saw Gallery a few weeks ago. I thought I'd given it away without taking a picture, but when I got my camera back after lending it to a friend, there it was! The collage is on a piece of orange crate, with Captain Highliner framed by a lock-nut from a bike. The crab claw was from a summer excursion.

Super Cake!

This is another collage from 1998. The background is a recipe for raisin bran muffin's that was on the inside of a cereal box. I was participating in a weekly art project with poet Karen Massey and artist Katie Argyle and the topic of the week was "cake". Special appearance by David Kronenburg.

Future Cloudy




From a series of undated collages using "found" text, probably 1998? Judging from the optimistic tone, I'd guess I made this one during a bout of insomnia.

Moving Countdown

I recently found out I have a few months to move, so I have begun to excavate the layers that I have built around me. This includes digging through boxes from my previous move. I discovered a bundle of old collages from 2000 and before; some damaged, some unfinished, none documented. I'll be posting some of these in the days to come, starting with these two that were stuck together and are now pretty much illegible. I think it gives them a strange fragile beauty. I might work on them some more, or maybe frame them. I like how they have transferred information onto one other, encrypted each other. Or maybe I should throw them away. Right now they are spread out on the floor with my cat sitting on top of them. I'm not much of an archivist.

Lumiere Festival 2010, Saturday, September 4!!!



September, already? Time for the Lumiere Festival 2010. Here is a sneak preview of what I've been working on for this year's Festival. As you can imagine, this will look quite different by candlelight. Helpful hint: consider how you will transport an art installation across the city BEFORE you start building. Fortunately, I have friends who were willing to lend me their truck (thanks!!!). I will also be installing my bike wheel chandeliers in the park again this year. If you've never been to this festival, you must check out the lanterns and performers that will populate Stanley Park along the Rideau River this Saturday!!!

Urban Art in Minto Park, Tomorrow!!!

Middle Age Spread

After months of preparing, Urban Art in Minto Park is tomorrow. This is the 5th annual show and the second year that Katie and I have been the organizers. Things are chugging along, so as long as mother nature cooperates, we should have a fantastic day in Centretown.

I will have Mobius T-shirts at the show, as well as small collage work and cards, and I have made three sculptures to place around the park.

Come on down and check out the 60 or so dynamic artists and craftspeople that will be showing their work in this idyllic downtown park at Elgin and Gilmour st.

Urban Art @ Minto Park

Just over a week to go until Urban Art @ Minto Park and things are coming together nicely. We have a selection of over 60 local artists. Some are veterans of this 5th annual event (2nd that Katie and I have put together) and for some it will be their first show ever! We have several collectives and will have a booth for Ottawa School of Art Grads and a table for Lady Evelyn Alternative School, who will be selling hand-painted canvas shopping bags as a school fundraiser. Post an anonymous message at the Post-it Secrets booth, or leave your mark with a chalk drawing on the boulevard of this beautiful downtown Ottawa park.

Timothy Hunt @ Dovercourt Community Centre June 1st - June 30th, 2010

collageThis month, local artist Timothy Hunt presents a selection of 18 collages from the Globe and Mail Project. Acting on a free three month subscription from Canada’s National Newspaper and armed with only a pair of scissors, a typewriter and a gluestick, Tim embarked on a 90 day marathon of humorous collages using clippings from each day’s newspaper spanning topics including sports, religion and politics. The results are... well, you be the judge! The entire collection of the Globe and Mail Project can be viewed at timothyhunt.blogspot.com.

Timothy Hunt is an artist and Sculptor living in Westboro. He has participated in numerous shows across Canada with his company Mobius T-shirts and his artwork has been seen around Ottawa at the GCTC and many Art in the Park events. His “bicycle wheel chandeliers” were a big hit at last year’s Lumiere Festival in New Edinburg’s Stanley Park. Tim is also co-organizer for Urban Art in Minto Park, a juried Art and Craft event in downtown Ottawa, Sat July 24th. If something is not nailed down, it may well find its way into Tim’s artwork and he has been know to run with scissors.

Timothy can be contacted at timhuntottawa@gmail.com

Submission to C4 Gallery


This is my submission for the C4 Gallery, a mobile gallery that houses each work in a small drawer. My piece is a mini globe of my community. Because of its shape, the ball will revolve when the drawer is opened revealing different viewpoints and reflecting the changes taking place in the landscape.
From the City of Ottawa Website:
The C4 Gallery is a one-of-a-kind mobile cabinet that will travel to community centres across Ottawa for two-month exhibits. The cabinet’s 24 drawers have been specially designed to display small pieces of art submitted by a wide range of artistic talents, from emerging to professional artists. Every two months, the C4 Gallery will be moved to a different community centre with a new set of thought-provoking art pieces tucked inside its drawers. Artwork currently on display is swapped with the incoming art, so that each contributing artist is presented with a piece of art in exchange for his submission to the gallery.
