A call for submission for a new group show titled LANDSCAPE | PORTRAIT meant time for thoughtful experimentation & executing an idea I had been considering. Articulations posed a challenge to work with their 4.5 x 9 inch gessoed panels & create pieces with the only stipulation being that the art fit on the surface on the panel. I decided to do a remix on the landscape of Toronto, to create a portrait of my city by reconfiguring neighbourhoods I both lived & worked in. I cut up maps of the city and coated the papers with metallic washes to create geometric patterns of skewed building blocks, towering puzzles, and star constellations along my re-imagined north shore of Lake Ontario.
