Artist member since 2018
In my work as an abstract painter I cut and weave the fine strips of several painted canvases to create a different kind of painting. The process is quite symbolic and metaphorical. Historically, painting is largely male-dominated and craft is traditionally identified as a female activity, and my paintings bring these two worlds together. However, this is beyond gender issues, but simply two opposing concepts meeting, challenging and rethinking the mountains that stand in our way – thoughtfully taking apart and reassembling what lies before us to create a new perspective. It’s the ups and downs, the give and the take, the blunders and the victories.
I am Elisabeth Heidinga, a Toronto based artist from France, born (1981) in Cologne, Germany. I graduated with honours from OCAD University in 2010.
