Thinkspace Projects is thrilled to present two new solo
shows, highlighting the works from two talented Canadian artists.

In Gallery One, Thinkspace Projects is thrilled to present Sandra Chevrier’s second solo show with
the gallery, ‘Cages and the Shadow of Colors.’ The Montréal-based Canadian artist creates work
that explore identity as a locus of competing imperatives and complex contradictions. Drawing
parallels between the assumed invulnerability of the superhero and the impossible demands placed
upon the contemporary individual, Chevrier creates literal and metaphoric masks by combining
comic book imagery assembled from found and imagined sources. Her dystopian spin on the
iconic figure of the superhero looks to reveal the flaws in the staged extroversion of the superficial
veneer.

In Gallery Two, Thinkspace is excited to present Troy Lovegates’ latest solo show, ‘Would.’ The
artist, formerly known as Other, brings his vast knowledge of street art and work with found objects
to the gallery, presenting his first collection composed entirely of his intricate, hand-carved wooden sculptures. Lovegates has carefully crafted a diverse cast of characters in the hopes that it will
encourage interaction and provoke thought from viewers. The grizzled characters are sure to
provoke conversation, bringing attendees together to wonder about the history and personality of
each and every one.
