Exhibiting Artists

  • Erin Armstrong  (+)

    Biography : Erin is a contemporary figurative artist working and living in Toronto, CA. Her work looks into the human imagination as it is expressed visually. She is particularly intrigued by the ways in which the mind can conjure and create worlds by piecing together memory, experience, and the ability of the mind’s eye to render a non-reality. She draws on the genre of portraiture as a foundation for these explorations, but chooses to depict not a person or sitter, but an atmosphere or sensation expressed inside the formal qualities of human shapes. She was named Saatchi’s “Ones to Watch”, Designlines magazine called her one of “Toronto’s Art Stars” and BlogTO counted her as one of the years “Most Talked About Artists'”. She has created work for clients such as Nike, The Drake Hotel Toronto and Drake Devonshire, Anthropologie, The Broadview Hotel, Portia De Rossi and Ellen Degeneres’ “General Public Art", Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”, and Kit+Ace. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout Canada and the United States as well as England, Australia, Scotland, Switzerland, and Sweden.

  • Shawn Huckins  (+)

    Biography : Shawn Huckins is known for both his brilliant humor and technical skill as a painter. In his most notable series to date, ‘The American Revolution Revolution’ and ‘The American ___tier,’ Huckins satirizes social media, asking whether the devolution of language in the face of technological advancement weakens our ability to empathize and connect to one another in a meaningful way. By layering early American portraiture and landscape with text taken directly from the internet, Huckins confronts the priorities of our society in comparison to simpler times. What would George Washington post on Facebook? How would Lewis and Clark communicate their progress westward via Twitter? Huckins’ works are meticulously hand-painted, including the letters. The portraits, landscapes and pastoral scenes are sourced from public domain records and museum collections of classic American paintings. A New Hampshire native, Huckins now lives and works in Denver, Colorado. His work has been displayed in private and public collections across the country, including the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, MA and the Vicki Myhren Gallery at the University of Denver. Huckins has received grants from the Haven Foundation of Maine, Artists’ Fellowship Inc. of New York City, and the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism, among others. His work has been featured in notable publications such as Forbes, Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose Magazine, Huffington Post, New American Paintings, The Jealous Curator, and The Advocate. 5280 Magazine named Huckins as one of five artists to collect now in 2015. Huckins studied at Keene State College in New Hampshire and The University of Wollongong in Australia and received his BA in Studio Arts in 2006.

    Detailed Description : Ipsen works in a non-functional ceramic expression involving both form and decoration. Pulchritude is integrated into the form and the form itself is spatially ravishing. The sculptures could also be constructed with other materials as PVC, leather or hand painted pattern. But ceramics is central in Steen Ipsen'S works. The sculptures are all unique. The artist never use computer or digital technique. Craftsmanship is paramount to him. Ipsen works are glazed, re-glazed and fired several times to obtain a perfect and monochrome surface. The works are underlined with coloured strings or hand decorated pattern as a contrast to the object's shape and to express the influence of the sculpture's movements and put the works in a spatial context and show a strong graphical expression.

  • Jen Mann  (+)

    Biography : Mann’s body of work looks at identity, self, and how we understand others. Each piece is an existential exploration into reality, depicted in large hyper realistic oil paintings. Her newest body of work is comprised of self-portraits exploring the creation of identity, and how we understand ourselves through that lens. We are always changing, and basing who we are on our memories of ourselves. Mann explores the realness of identity, and its relation to our culture and the society we live in now. In the society of "me", where we document ourselves like celebrities and share our lives online for everyone, the self is a prevalent, and important topic to our generation. Our identities are curated like our online profiles to reflect only the parts of ourselves we chose to keep alive. Who am I? Who are you? What does my life mean? Why am I alive? Mann's work aims to address these very illusive questions, and explore, but not necessarily answer all of them.

    Biography : As a paper engineer, my work is rooted in print media, book arts and commercial design. Beginning with an initial fold, a single action causes a transfer of energy to subsequent folds, which ultimately manifest in drawing and three dimensional forms. I use my engineering skills to create kinetic sculpture which have led to collaborations with scientists at University of Michigan. We work on the nanoscale, translating paper structures to micro folds. Our investigations extend to visualizing cellular division and solar cell development. Researchers see paper engineering as a metaphor for scientific principles; I see their inquiry as a basis for artistic inspiration. In my studio I am a collaborator, explorer and inventor. I begin with a system of folding and at a particular moment the material takes over. Guided by wonder, my work is made because I cannot visualize its final realization; in this way I come to understanding through curiosity.

About

Duran|Mashaal is a Montreal-based gallery that focuses on emerging and mid-career artists both locally and internationally. Bridging the geographical gap, the young gallery represents innovative artists that experiment with the process of artmaking, pioneer new art forms, or rediscover colour, shape or style to bring something original to the art world. Whether it be in technique and methodology, or execution and performance, each of the artists that Duran|Mashaal represents brings a unique element to the gallery, inspiring a dialogue of emotion and intellect to transpire.

Showcasing the talent of 18 artists, Duran|Mashaal curates art from around the globe in order to promote accessibility; by exhibiting international art alongside local art, collectors and dilettantes alike are exposed to a whole world of original pieces as opposed to mass-market art that is now so readily available. Duran|Mashaal promotes emerging and mid-career artists in the fields of photography, paintings, and sculpture.

Since the gallery first opened its doors in 2017, they have taken artists to several art fairs. Most recently featured in the British Journal of Photography magazine in 2018.
