Recently, I met two fantastic artists, Karoline Varin-Jarkowski and Ulf Konig at the Globe Studios Spring show. We were sharing space together in the gallery at the May Spring Globe Studios show, as guest artists.
Karoline was exhibiting these delightful, vintaged altered books with delicate layers upon layers of story telling embedded within the pages. However, as a viewer you got only glimpses of the story, and were able to imagine the rest...it was a lovely exhibit.
Ulf, visiting all the way from Germany, came to visit Canada, the galleries in Toronto and to participate in the Globe Spring show. His work and concept are intriguing...as an engineer you can see his passion for structure and appreciation for urban landscape. His work is delivered with enthusiasm, passion and great skill. He is a delightful soul.
It was lovely to meet both of them and spend a weekend with them.
