Jeannie Thib goes 3D.

Jeannie Thib's Hyperflat is a thought-provoking wonderland of shapes, structures and sketches. Her latest exhibition explores the finer points of architecture through an interesting mix of materials. Her aluminum wall installations, Range, Link and Projection play with light and movement and give a beautiful three-dimensional effect while Section and Cube create a nice juxtaposition between light and dark colours. The woody life-size Wireframe is an interesting structure that comments on space and architecture. Thib's standout work includes Complex a collection of four structures made of marble, aluminum, steel and glass. It won't be hard to miss Shift the purple structure made of 500 sliced pieces of wool felt. It's cutting edge.

To May 13, Saint Mary's University Art Gallery, 923 Robie Street
