Visual Art – Toronto, ONT

Jennifer Radford is a self-taught visual artist whose aesthetic emerges from storymaking, crafting images that capture the lynchpins of identity. Her acrylic paintings and encaustic mixed media works engage the landscapes of memory, personality, loss, death, and the literal and figurative monsters that populate our interior lives. Her non-traditional self-portraits explore the collision of experience and memory, and the ways in which the events which change us present themselves in our exterior selves. Jennifer’s work regularly juxtaposes metaphorical/literal, light/darkness, sacred/profane, despair/hope, and memory/desire. Two of Jennifer’s pieces – one acrylic and one encaustic – have been accepted to the finals of the 2016 Toronto Emerging Artist Awards, to be shown and juried this September and October. She has also been nominated for the #ThrivingArtist award. Her current catalogue of work can be viewed on the web at www.radfordmakesart.com. Jennifer was born in Quebec, and grew up in a small town called Almonte, near Ottawa. She studied at Queen’s University, and has been a professional theatre artist for many years. Now based in Toronto, Jennifer is a film actor, computer geek, bookaholic, and vintage bicycle mechanic. ...more
