Booooooom x Herschel Supply: “Drawing On The Past” Gallery Show

drawingonthepast-booooooom2

 

I’m excited to finally announce our “Drawing On The Past” project with Herschel Supply will end in style next Thursday, October 2nd, with a gallery show at Burrard Arts Foundation (108 East Broadway). We will be packing in as many of the incredible submissions as we can fit. The show will run until October 5th. Beverages will be provided by Vancouver Urban Winery and Postmark Brewing.

If you plan to attend please RSVP the Eventbrite HERE. We may get really busy so there may be a line at some point during the night. If you’re on the list you’ll have an easier time getting in.

I also want to officially announce the winners of the very special Booooooom x Herschel Supply bags. Congratulations to the three on the flyer above: Lucy Drury, Maria Nguyen, and Mallory Lucille Rose. I know I said there’d be three winners but I actually picked a fourth winner, Rachel Hines. Her submission below is maybe my favourite of the entire project. There were many beautifully rendered portraits of people, places, and things but I was struck by the small moment that Rachel described. This is what a drawing made of honest lines looks like:

Thank you to everyone who submitted a drawing and shared a story. It’s going to be a really amazing show, we’re displaying all the drawings on custom made clipboards. I hope to see lots of you there! Following the show I will post an online gallery of all the digital submissions we received so stay tuned for that as well.

Once again, if you wanna come to the gallery show next Thursday, 6PM, October 2nd, please RSVP the Eventbrite HERE.

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
