Know Hope has a new body of work entitled "There Is Nothing Dear (There Is Too Much Dear)" which opens at the Show & Tell Gallery (Toronto) on October 7th. It seems KH is moving naturally towards his outdoor aesthetic by bringing in found wood and materials to accompany his signature character. (Click here to see Know Hope images en masse.)

Dante was invited to be in the RH Gallery inaugural group exhibition "The Third Meaning". Coined by Roland Barthes in a discussion about Russian film director Sergei Eisenstein, the term "the third meaning" is a "signifier without a signified": a representation without a direct, material source. It exists "where another language begins. The third meaning - theoretically locatable but not describable can (now) be seen as the passage from language to significance." This definition is beautifully executed by Dante in his latest work for the show as pictured above.
The exhibition is on view now through November 11, 2010 at RH Gallery.
