Deliberate Apertures and Accidental Enclosures by Antonietta Grassi

Meet Montreal-based artist Antonietta Grassi and gain more insight into her work. Light refreshments will be served.

More about the artist: Antonietta Grassi’s exhibit features a questioning of both our physical and mental surroundings. This idea is reinforced in her following statement: ”My current series of paintings operates at the conjunction of abstraction and representation, furthering my ongoing investigations into the instabilities of compositional structure and architectural form as metaphors for psychological states, such as instability and loss.“

Antonietta Grassi is a professional artist and professor in the Visual Arts Department at Dawson College in Montreal. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University and a Master’s of Fine Arts from l’Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). Her work can be found in public and private collections, including the Musée du Québec. She has been the recipient of several grants and awards, including from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec. She has had numerous solo and group exhibitions across Canada and Europe and has participated in notable shows on contemporary abstract painting.
