Things to Do and People to See in T.O. This Week
Dianne Davis
"Landymore Keith Contemporary Art may be nestled away in colourful Little Portugal, but curators Meredith Keith and Heather Landymore are culling the crowds from Queen West for their unpretentious array of Canadian art. In Sleepwalking, local photographer Dianne Davis's inaugural solo, squint to see shadowy strangers lurking through a night lit only by streetlights. Friday, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Free. Landymore Keith Contemporary Art, 800 Dundas St. W. 416-361-3074. http://www.landymorekeith.com"
ANNA-KAISA WALKER AND NADJA SAYEJ
Toronto Star - Critics' Choice - February 21, 2008
"Dianne Davis's "Sleepwalking" promises the viewer a visit into "a nocturnal world where wandering characters are dwarfed by (the) seemingly endless darkness of evening." Some time ago I found what this might mean when I came across Tracey, an image by the emerging Toronto photographer. In it, the face of young woman seems to have been entirely embalmed by darkness. In the "Sleepwalking" series, Davis's artfully created darkness, obscuring walkways, trees and just about everything else, seems to be a permanent condition, not merely a time at night. (Landymore Keith Contemporary Art, 800 Dundas St. W., until March 23)."
