ART BY REDZ

I’ve always found art inspiring; and never thought of it as something I could do, but over the years I’ve come to find it extremely therapeutic, and as a way to express who I am and how I feel about the world, especially the way we look at our bodies and sex. My art is a true reflection of how naked I feel every day, how naked we all feel when being ourselves, or when we’re trying to get attention from this world. Although I am new to this beautiful world of art, I feel such a strong love for it, it’s all I think about, and all I do, no matter how vulnerable it makes me feel, it also empowers me, and I hope it does the same for others.

VISUAL ARTIST

TORONTO TREV

Toronto Trev is an urban visual artist that recently turned his passion into his profession. His work is based on common thoughts and expressions inspired by his life and others. A lot of his concepts are musically influenced with the messages always being delivered directly. Most people describe his style as “dark”, but also gothic, painful, expressive and relatable. With short words and phrases mixed with symbols and subliminals each creation is worth at least a thousand words.

The overall subject matter and colour selection truly embrace and acknowledge death, power, optimism, and pain. With imagery such as skulls, x eyes, blood, and splatter, he expresses dedication, honour, love, life, passion and pain. At first glance the intended pain caused by too much effort is most predominantly displayed and felt, with the titles tending to explain what is being expressed. With the title partly explaining what is being expressed, the viewer can then notice the subtle secret messages before reading the descriptions.
 
Toronto Trev had his first display on October 30th 2022 and since then he has been working on his new collection titled “LOVE LOST”.

PATRICE CRICHLOW

My name is Patrice Crichlow.
In 2006 I was diagnosed with lupus. For the next three years I battled seizures, endless hospital stays then I had my hip replaced.
I was extremely overwhelmed that’s when I noticed that my friends had disappeared, I had lost my license, & the reality that I wouldn’t be able to return to the workforce had sunk in. Making jewelry was something that always gave me peace. I began making jewelry to keep myself occupied & distracted. Before I knew it I had a small collection. That is how Konfidence Jewelry was born. I named my business Konfidence because through my jewelry I got my voice back. I make Sterling Silver jewelry with Gemstones, Freshwater Pearls, & Swarovski Crystals. In late 2009 I hosted my first home show. Over the next few years I did a few hosted a few more jewelry parties at peoples houses & made jewelry for two bridal parties. Then I had to slow down once again.
In 2015 a had a request from a client to make a wooden set. I enjoyed doing that so much that I continued. Then my second business was born Erry’Ting Wood. I make men & women wooden jewelry. Necklaces, Bracelets, Earrings, Rings, Chokers .
I sell Calabash purses small & large. Jewelry boxes & Sculptures (wooden & stone).
