Osvaldo Ramirez Castillo: Catastrophe, Memory and Reconciliation

As a native of El Salvador living in the diaspora, Ramirez Castillo uses drawing as his primary tool for storytelling to deploy elements found in pre-Hispanic mythology, Salvadoran popular folklore and iconography sourced from North American vernacular culture. His studio process is a constant act of revision that manipulates appropriated imagery into personal mythic narratives in a multi-layered fashion. The human body is used as a symbol and site for trauma in reference to personal and collective experiences of war and loss that marked El Salvador during the civil war years in the 1980s- a time that the artist and his family lived through, and as a result of which, immigrated to Canada.

Soyeon Cho: The Tangled Web of Emotions

Cho’s imaginative and colourful assemblages incorporate everyday materials such as Q-tips, plastic forks, clear tapes, artificial flowers and parts of household goods to reflect on our relationship to these consumer products and the underlying implications on nature and the environment By revealing a hidden magical universe within these seemingly mundane objects she attempts to demonstrate the unending ability of the human mind to re-imagine and re-create its world through utopian landscapes.
Originally from Korea, Soyeon Cho now lives and works in Toronto.
