Metamorphosis: A Journey of Artistry & Expression
Featuring the works of Toller Cranston & Cylla Von Tiedemann
A captivating exhibition that combines the unique talents of Toller Cranston (1949-2015), a renowned Canadian painter and Olympic athlete, with the artistic vision of Cylla Von Tiedemann, a celebrated photographer specializing in dance and theater. This exhibition offers a fascinating exploration of transformation, creativity, and the convergence of multiple art forms.
In the mid 1980’s, at a time of great transformation in his life, Cylla stepped into the studio with Canadian Icon Toller Cranston. Toller thought it would be a project that would explore visual angles of the camera, however what Cylla captured of his incredible performance; the spirit and beauty Toller expressed with his body – resulted in a project that portrayed his moment of metamorphosis. This series of images was exhibited for the first time in May of 2022 at Donna Child Fine Art Gallery in Toronto.
