Significant Figures is to die for 

Igor Kolodin takes a mystic look at the famous.

Kolodin's Jeanne
  • Kolodin's Jeanne

Jack the Ripper never looked as good as he does in Igor Kolodin's latest collection, Significant Figures. Through his unique details and dark undertones, Kolodin creates portraits that are haunting and intriguing. Kolodin, a Russian Jewish immigrant, borrows from the Russian aesthetic of painted faces with no angled shots. His characters are set upon a stage in a dark background. Their round-shaped faces give a look of innocence. Kolodin's visual appeal lies in the details. Many of his works, particularly Piranida, feature miniature heads with intricate expressions of happiness, shock and curiosity. There are also religious undertones in the collection with the Jewish star featured prominently in some of the works. A few portraits of humans with horns and cat faces are also humorous and clever. Perhaps the most intriguing are Vampire and Jack. But watch out for the bones underneath.

To October 5, Studio 21, 1223 Lower Water Street, 420-1852

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
