Fine Art | Jacquie Green
Jacquie Green is a multi-talented Toronto-based artist who uses drawing and painting (and often a combination of the two), as a form of first-hand study. "It provides an immediate connection to the world that fascinates me because it is outside the realm of language. When you draw or paint something, you know it in a different, intimate way."In her series "Tamed," Green utilizes a variety of media to portray a familiar yet potentially surreal everyday sight, the city's dog-walkers. Here, elements of painting, drawing, and collage combine, a textural surface revealing its multimedia components only upon close inspection.
