Painting, Booth 108
Sandra Iafrate brings big bold florals and intriguing landscape to the Artist Project this year. Her ongoing oil painting series entitled, “Abundance” show busy and complex compositions which include florals and foliage, alive with colour and movement, that seems to go beyond the boundaries of the canvas. Her use of innovative techniques in acrylic, oil and mixed media are demonstrated in her ‘Drip’ and ‘Broken’ landscape series. Composed with paint skins, drips, disrupted (sanded out) images and empty spaces, Sandra creates a unique commentary on nature, calling us to fill in the blanks. She has been awarded a government honorary for her work in the arts, as well as a finalist award from International Artist Magazine for her floral paintings. She has exhibited in Canada, U.S. and Europe and works from her studio in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
