My Piece at Propeller Gallery Opening Night – Warning Nudity!

Leave a comment

Last night was the big opening for Propeller Gallery’s new show “The Sex Offensive: Emancipating Gender” for World Pride Toronto. I have a piece in the show that I’m sure you’ve seen before, The Blue Rose. This group show showcases  incredible artists and work and overall I thought was very well curated. Here are some pics of my favourites and the dramatic performance piece at the end. I was a bit overwhelmed and forgot to take pictures of all the pieces, my apologies to my artist friends.

Here I am all dressed up beside my painting, The Blue Rose.

These pieces were essentially about recreating the genesis story in the bible. I love the juxtaposition of medias used.

These are illustrations done on china showing basically lesbian love making. They were extremely well done!

Hand and penis embroidered on denim shorts. So great.

The same artists from above did this one as well. I just love the imagery of this, you can do no wrong with flying penises.

This photo makes me so happy.IMG_4550

In the back, where my painting was, this was set up to accompany a performance peice.

The performers are ready to go.

Here they’re observing the images on the wall, possibly reflecting. There was a lot of heavy breathing.

Then is suddenly got kinky with dominatrix and sexual acts.

This went on for a while.

Then she went into the audience and starting hitting people (very lightly) with her whip.

They made out after this. Which surprised me a bit as there wasn’t any kissing up until this point.

You can see my painting! The performance was basically done after this moment of “worship”. I personally found myself uncomfortable during the majority of the performance but I guess that was the point. I applaud them though for sticking in character for such a long time even after some individuals started getting chatty and disruptive.  Regardless, it was interesting and I applaud myself for sticking around and watching the whole thing. I had a great night and met some amazing people and I suggest you should all go down there on Saturday to see the rest of the show during Nuit Rose.

As a painter and artist I find it hard sometimes to not take my work too seriously, so I created this blog! I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do. In the mean time, if you are curious as to what else I draw, check out my online portfolio, http://jessicacaissie.com/
