Within View is a collaborative exhibition that explores different relationships to landscape and space through various repetitive layered applications of the chosen media.

Through the observation of the natural environment in northern Ontario, Cassidy Hopkins employs a printmaking aesthetic (layering of colour and texture) to focus on parts of landscapes that people may take for granted. The natural markings of rock formations are emphasized through the language of relief and silkscreen prints.

With the use of thick gestural applications of paint, Ariel Williams creates imaginative studies of the vast flat landscapes of the reserve where she grew up. Through varying scale, image repetition, and borders that reference Polaroid photos, the works suggest a quiet nostalgia for this island landscape.

Using readily available materials (printed paint chips, plaster) in site-specific sculptural installations, Sian Smith’s works are loosely based on suburban architectural and interior designs. She plays with spacial awareness and layering processes, developing ideas intuitively through repetitive practices.

Within View is part of the spring 2019 series of exhibitions by Fanshawe 3rd year Fine Art students.

SATELLiTE Project Space is a dynamic partnership between three significant London, Ontario, arts institutions: Fanshawe College, Museum London and Western University. The mandate of  SATELLiTE is to provide a flexible space for new and temporary projects, collaborations, and experiments in the arts and culture.
