OCAD University (Toronto, ON)
My work is an exploration of how 2 and 3-dimensional forms and shapes can work together to create an environment. I use unconventional characters as the representational figures of our environments, and how they can coexist with one another in one space. The work serves as an exploration of the dichotomy between organic, smooth lines and angular edges, using color and forms in order to evoke tension.
