MARCH 18 - MAY 6 Toronto artist Cathy Da­ley is known for her oil-pastel sil­hou­ettes of the fe­male form, in­spired by the world of high fash­ion and im­ages of dance. Da­ley says her work arose from a cri­tique of the fash­ion in­dus­try and its lim­i­ta­tions in rep­re­sent­ing women. This solo ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures new pieces that con­tinue to ex­plore the sub­ject of the fe­male form, while evolv­ing in style. For her new pieces Da­ley was in­flu­enced by Rus­sian con­struc­tivist cos­tum­ing, as well as by Ja­panese fash­ion de­signer Issey Miyake who is known for his tech­nol­ogy-in­spired de­signs. “I think the work has a lot of pos­i­tive en­ergy,” Da­ley says. “I hope that it has a feel­ing of en­ergy and power of the body.” New­zones, 730 - 11 Ave SW, 403-266-1972, new­
