Newzones is pleased to announce Interjections,  a solo show by Sarah Nind.

By interjecting pattern into her visual language, Nind's current work is addressing ideas of pattern and the decorative arts, and its juxtaposition/collision with the "high" art image. Undoubtedly, we are living in a world that is increasingly visual, with multi-leveled systems of language becoming the norm. This juxtaposition questions language and our understanding of seemingly disparate systems. Is pattern a language with which we structure a world that is chaotic and undefined?

Nind begins her process with scanned photographs from various locations including Canada, South-East Asia, China and Europe. The photographs are then manipulated with digital patterns from the artist's collection of photographs and material fragments. Oil paint is used as the final step in creating these photo-based mixed media artworks.

Recently named as one of Whitehot Magazine's Critic Picks top artists of 2013, Sarah Nind attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris in 1979. In 1994, she obtained a Master's Degree in Fine Arts from York University in Toronto and has since completed her Doctorate at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee Switzerland. Most recently, Nind has completed a three year residency in Beijing, China. Nind has exhibited extensively through Canada, the United States and abroad, including China, Switzerland and Israel. She has shown and been collected by the National Gallery of Canada and is in the permanent collections of the Tom Thompson Memorial Gallery, the Prague House of Photography in Czechoslovakia, and the Elvehjem Museum of Art in Wisconsin among others. As an Associate Professor at the Ontario College of Art and Design, Nind has also been named to the National Gallery of Canada's artist advisory committee on the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography in Ottawa.
