About a week after speaking with Sonia Del Re, I made my way back to the exhibition to see whether what I have learned affected my perception of Escher’s art. I started with the artist’s early works, the Italian landscapes, and slowly made my way through the rest of the exhibition, taking time to absorb the variety of shapes and what was happening to them.
When it comes to engagement, the recently closed exhibition M.C. Escher: The Mathemagician at the National Gallery of Canada was a first for me. Never before have I devoted so much time and thought to one exhibition: three visits, a guided tour, a chat with the curator, and a bit of research to boot.

Sometimes I like something SO much, I just CAN’T stop talking about it. Janie Julien-Fort’s photographic exhibition Révélations anticipées (Early Revelations), at Voix Visuelle gallery in Vanier, is my most recent “something”.
Is this where we are headed without a viewfinder?
