Tammy Salzl, a painter from Montréal/Edmonton and sculpture and installation artist Emily Jan, also from Montréal, have teamed up for Falling through the mirror, an exhibition that not only blurs the line between the monstrous and the magical, but examines identity, the family and the feminine.
“I see them as snapshots from a fairy-tale book whose allegories are the stuff of our real lives,” Salzl explains of her large-scale oil paintings that create an attraction-repulsion dynamic through their juxtaposing imagery. “There’s a lot of unsettling imagery, but I complement that with the beauty of paint and through narration, so they come off as these operatic, tableau kind of Grimms Brothers’ fairy-tale illustrations.”
