Right now I've got some work in a great group show on display here in Toronto at the Steam Whistle gallery called 'Cut to the Drummer'
, a project that was put together by Bepo + mimi
- which, in case you didn't know - is driven by powerhouse Sandra Dionisi
. Check out the CTTD
site to hear an interview I did with Alan Cross, the man and expert behind 'Ongoing History of New Music'.
Below is a painting I did of drummer Aaron Solowoniuk of Billy Talent
, titled 'SKINS', as well a couple of shots from the show and another of this painting still in my studio... The other painting is of Archie Alleyne
, titled 'Tension' - Peter Goddard, a reviewer at The Toronto Star newspaper, had this to say about the portrait: "Julia Breckenreid's Archie Alleyne – a deliciously shadowy image of the veteran Toronto jazz drumming stalwart – is a lyrical contemporary exception to this old-school approach."
