Paintings From Early 2016

Jan-September, 2016

Artist Statement: After winning one of the three purchase prizes from the RBC Painting Competition, I felt the need to drastically change what I was doing. It was too easy to make an abstract painting that referenced the western canon even though, ideally, I thought I was snubbing this history. Part of me was still very attached to aesthetics of modernism. 

The body of work made during my time at a residency in Banff and also in my studio in Toronto shows my process in trying to leave the reaches of the canon and start developing a narrative of my own that I find truly interesting.
