Kristiina Lahde is an artist from Toronto, Canada. She received her BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD) in 1999. Lahde’s work is in the collection of the Canada Council Art Bank and she is represented by MKG127, Toronto. She was recently longlisted for the Sobey Art Award. Criss-Cross is a series of new works that Lahde created during her recent residency at Open Studio. Using familiar measuring tapes and setsquares that have been embossed into white paper, Lahde has created a range of low relief patterns and effects. The series incorporates layered geometric patterns as well as intricate masses of spirals and zigzags. The work focuses on the form of an object without its function. A text by Bill Clarke accompanies the exhibition.
