Brian Donnelly 

Donnelly is a Toronto based artist who deals in a language of paradox -- conflicting elements working against each other as a means of exploring both the immutable and the ephemeral. Familiar forms are rendered anomalous, the absolute becomes faint memory, and logic is met with absurdity. Distortions caused by obstruction, erasing, separation, generation loss and outright obliteration are adopted as tools to interfere with visual information. With counter-intuition driving output the result becomes a circular argument in which presence is defined by absence, success by failure, and life by death
