    The landscape paintings of Anna B. Grant are visual metaphors of an ever-changing landscape-reshaped by human impact, yet struggling to regenerate itself. Through a dreamlike and abstract style, Grant's landscapes express the transformative force of the natural world.
    Inspired by the coastal landscapes of British Columbia, Grant's artworks embody their shorelines dotted with islands and green and shady forests. As a visual storyteller, she interweaves abstract and brightly coloured shapes to create imagined landscapes.
    Grant’s processes emphasize the changing environment she depicts. Her paintings are achieved by pouring stains of acrylic paint on the canvas. Grant mixes different shades of colour by pouring them onto plastic sheets. Once dry, she peels them off and integrates them into the support, creating ambiguous figure-ground relationships.
    Grant’s plasticized landscapes present an uneasy beauty that is both compelling and perplexing. There is a dystopic feeling that makes us question what we see when we experience the ever-changing natural world.

When they awake in limbo, a mechanical fortune teller invites each to tell a story to win a prize like no other — the chance to return to life. A funny, moving look at what makes a life well-lived!

    Barbara Tolloczko

    I was educated as a scientist but always maintained a keen interest
    in arts. While working as a researcher at McGill University in Montreal I
    studied art and obtained a BFA degree from Concordia University.
    In my work I use a variety of media - drawing, oil painting and
    printmaking - to create both figurative and abstract pieces. My work
    has been shown at several venues and is included in private
    collections in Canada, US, England, France and Poland.
    I like my work to express specific ideas and to provoke reflection.
    What’s more, the creative process itself, spending time working with
    my hands, gives me a valuable meditative possibility.
    “Simple LIfe” project is not, as it might be expected, about simple ways
    of peoples’ lives but about so-called simple organisms.The imagery is
    inspired by microscopical images of mainly unicellular organisms and
    often serves as a metaphor for human behaviour or emotions.
    The idea of a single cell being simple, it is anything but. These small
    beings are a strange and beautiful place of complexity, grace and
    mystery. Juxtaposition of the idea of simple organisms and complex
    structure and function is endlessly fascinating. It draws our attention
    to notice small things and events, makes us understand their
    significance and makes us aware that l ife is beautiful and important
    and deserves respect at each level and in any form.
