Playtimes, a new series of monumental paintings by York Visual Art Professor Janet Jones, is on view at Toronto’s Katzman Contemporary March 27 to April 25, 2015. Evoking abstract representations of a contemporary urban existence on the brink of a “techno-sublime explosion”, the real and the virtual overtly overlay, careen and collide in these works. Playtimes proposes that “play” is serious – seductive yet terrifying, mesmerizing yet delirious – and depicts the actuality of existence and its tangible consequences.
