ABOUT

Fiona Freemark is a cut-paper artist who lives and works in Toronto. At the very core, her artwork is based on the exploration of personal memory. Photographs that are taken while on the move mimic the mental snapshots that stick in the mind throughout the day. The layering of imagery is then used to reflect an overlap of memories, where the division between specific thoughts and visuals is not always clear. Physically cutting into and away from a photograph to create the final image allows her to explore formal interests and the transitory nature of memories themselves. The results are delicate, object-like pieces that play with light and shadow to move between the photograph and a second, implied image.

Fiona graduated with a BA Honours Studio Art from McMaster University in 2012. She is represented in Toronto by Parts Gallery.
