Add to calendar 2023-09-6 10:00:00 2023-09-21 17:00:00 America/New_York Provocateur Canadian-born artist Ramona Nordal studied art at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Columbia. Here she studied lithography, color theory, painting and drawing with a focus on anatomy drawing and painting. Color theory has always been a huge part of Nordal’s process and she is quickly becoming known for her richly evocative color palette. The central theme that unites all of her work is the mixture of the traditional with the unconventional, not only in her subject matter and color palette but also in her approach to materials and technique. Her subjects are a mixture of the female form with references as early as the late 1800’s to the 1970’s. By combining several decades she somehow creates figures that are uniquely Nordal. She is hyper aware of art’s relationship with human emotion and her subjects reflect this as they captivate you and entice you into their world. Nordal works on several pieces at once in her studio in Toronto stating “I find I get bored easily and by working on three or four paintings at a time it keeps things fresh for me. I work on one then switch half way through the day and start working on another one. This allows me the freedom to work on several different collections at once. I like the randomness of the process.” Nordal is represented by galleries in the United States, Canada, Germany and Australia. Her work has been collected in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Australia, Singapore and Europe. Ramona Nordal currently lives and works in Toronto, Canada. 218, Saint Paul West Montreal (QC) H2Y 1Z9 Galerie Blanche info@galerieblanche.com
