Karin Silverstone

Karin Silverstone draws landscapes with pencil on facsimile walls that have been reconstructed as a way to invoke involuntary memories, but also remind the viewer to respect natural environments. Most of her landscapes lack evidence of human presence however some hint at urban sprawl. The landscapes are based on personal photos that taken in south western Ontario, and referenced in the works by GPS letters and numbers. Silverstone re-purposes lath from local home renovations as well as used plaster and wallpaper. Repurposing these materials makes her canvases reminiscent of original structural walls, but also adds colour and variety to the compositions.
