Propeller Member Since 2022
I am a self-taught artist with an MA in Anthropological Research from the University of Manchester in England. I also hold honours degrees in Social-Cultural Anthropology and Administrative Studies from York University in Toronto. I participated in the Toronto Art Crawl in November 2022, Riverdale Art Walk in June 2022, and Art Vancouver in May 2022, the DE.MO Lifestyle, September 2021 exhibit hosted by the MADS Art Gallery in Milan, and the Art3F contemporary art fair in Brussels in November 2021.
I am a free-spirited British-born Jamaican Canadian abstract and mixed media artist based in Toronto. I am also a trained Sociocultural Anthropologist, who believes as humans, art is a manifestation of our curiosity about the material world and, as such, an essential part of what it means to be human. I borrow from Intuitive and Tactile Art forms to explore this relationship between art and the human experience. My work includes a network of crisscrossing lines separating rectangles of multiple shapes made of different materials and earthy and celestial colours and textures.Audra Townsend
