THE ART OF WEAVING: _documentary

The ancient art of creating hand-knotted carpets is one of the oldest forms of visual expression. Yet the complex process of making a carpet still remains a labour-intensive handmade affair. Linda Corbett has been documenting the weavers, dyemasters and manufacturers who make her original carpet designs in Kathmandu, Nepal over a two-year period. Editing has just begun on this educational documentary created for the web.

HAYDEN MENZIES: markers_documentary

How does a “young emerging” artist emerge? Balancing a creative life with the demands of financial reality can lead to innovative solutions if you’re Hayden Menzies, artist, musician and co-owner of Speakeasy Tattoo. The tat under his right kneecap, reads “free”, under the left, “bird”. Like the images that cover his body, Hayden’s linear, iconic artwork marks his passage through a creative life.

JACK SURES: a sensual touch
/ une sensualité tactile
_documentary

Filmmaker Linda Corbett presents the magnificent mural works of internationally renowned Canadian artist, Jack Sures. As she examines his murals for the Sturdy-Stone Centre, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Mino ‘89 / International Ceramics Competition and other locations we grow to appreciate how Jack Sures’ art engages us outside the gallery in an art experience that celebrates the tactile connections to nature in our everyday lives.

The film is part of a touring retrospective exhibition titled, Tactile Desires: The Work of Jack Sures organized by the MacKenzie Art Gallery and the Tom Thomson Art Gallery. The entire project was been made possible in part through a contribution from the Museums Assistance Program, Department of Canadian Heritage.
