Opening Reception: 1:00 to 4:00 pm Sarah Nind in attendance
Newzones is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of painting and photographic works by Sarah Nind.
Sarah Nind's works play off of a variety of dichotomies- photography versus painting, real versus imaginary, romantic versus paradisiacal, interior versus exterior, physical versus emotional. Beginning with a black and white photograph exposed onto ortholith film, Nind uses highly colored oil paints to tint the background from behind, creating an erie mix of color and darkness, converting the serene photos into a pop- like mixed media artwork. The artworks are dark yet give off light at the same time.
Sarah Nind was born in Kuala Belait, Brunei, Borneo and currently resides in Toronto. She attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris in 1979 and completed a Bachelor Degree in Architecture from the University of Toronto in 1981. In 1994 she completed a Master's Degree in Fine Arts from York University. Nind has exhibited extensively throughout Canada and the United States. Her work can be found in various public, private and corporate collections. Sarah Nind will also be part of a group exhibition entitled The Painted Photograph at the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography (CMCP) in Ottawa, Ontario. The exhibition willl run from May 05 until November 19, 2006 in the Main Level of the CMCP Gallery.
