Jessica Maan: Portraits in the Age of Selfies
September 25 – October 6
Opening reception: Thursday, September 26
2nd Floor Gallery
In Portraits in the Age of Selfies, Jessica Maan aims to share her admiration for the complexities of the essence of facial features and how they are conveyed and manipulated through paint. She draws attention to the distinctive faces of friends, family (and pets), using vibrant colours, light, and stark shadows.
Jessica Maan is a Toronto-based emerging artist who expresses herself through acrylic paintings on canvas. She paints in a realistic manner to capture the magnetism, grace and allure found in the snapshotted moment that reveals ‘you.’ She works from photos she has taken or borrowed, to reinterpret the emotion and mystery experienced throughout her interactions with the people in her life.
