    Drake Lab is pleased to present Jessica Baldanza’s most recent body of work in her first solo exhibition at the gallery.

    Baldanza's series explores the human relationship with surveillance. She questions the NSA’s controversial tactics and weak justifications to record our every move. While surveillance is intended to capture illegal and harmful activity, the reality is millions of hours capturing people in the mundane moments that comprise the bulk of modern urban existence. The result is a familiar portrait of isolation and loneliness. In her new paintings she uses a muted, de-saturated palette, limited aesthetic information, and anonymous faces. She attempts to capture the fundamental nature of this reality, to urge viewers to recognize themselves and their lives in the scenes, the anonymous figures acting as surrogates for viewers to identify with. These works encourage the spectator to critically question the privacy or lack there of that our society affords us.

    Jessica Baldanza (b. 1993) is a Canadian Artist based in Toronto, Ontario. Baldanza has exhibited in galleries across Toronto including Arta Gallery, The Gladstone Hotel and TheBlackCat Artspace. She is set to complete her BFA in Drawing and Painting from OCADU this April.

  • Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches.

    Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!
