The Best Laid Plans is a group exhibition by Toronto artists Romy Block, Bernice Manalo and Talie Shalmon, exploring the theme of control versus the absence of control in the art-making process, as well as the fear and relief associated with letting go. Each artist uses different methods and techniques to achieve a distinct aesthetic while leaving room for chance along the way.

My paintingsĀ focus on the tension between control and chaos by contrasting rigid, geometric shapes with organic, flowing lines.
