Varied Editions Featured Artist
Laurie Zinkand-Selles’s work considers time and memory, contrasting the brevity of our human experience with that of historical/architectural structures and environments. Her recent series of photo based screen prints, draws on historical images of Toronto and considers the evolving nature of the city. They are narratives of the past within an architectural or geographical context. Her work is inspired by travel, photography, appropriated print imagery, pattern and texture. These are used to suggest the passage of time and to consider the layers of memories that accumulate, collectively and individually, in a given place or time.
