photo-based / cut-paper artwork
 

ABOUT

"These works are meant to convey an emotion, a curiosity, or simply an odd coincidence that makes me stop in my tracks. I begin with a series of photographs, often taken while on the move, in-between destinations, or in a quiet moment. The blurred experiences of a busy day are then distilled into distinct pieces through a repetitive and experimental process. The resulting work allows specific moments and associated feelings to remain clear and more significant in my memory."

Fiona Freemark is a cut-paper artist who lives and works in Toronto. Fiona graduated with a BA Honours Studio Art from McMaster University in 2012. She is represented in Toronto by Dianna Witte Gallery.
