About

Curated calligraphic brushstrokes in black -- a rapid circle followed by three dashes of the brush -- are balanced by a vertical black swath in this ink and latex on paper. In its graphic simplicity, the powerful shapes and characters on a bright ground in this work reference Japanese Sumi-e brush writing. Lynne Fernie is a Toronto artist, OCAD honours graduate and award-winning documentary filmmaker. She has been the recipient of arts and film grants from the Canada Council, the Ontario Arts Council and the Toronto Arts Council, and has been a jury member of Canada Council and Ontario Arts Council juries. Her visual art is included in numerous private collections. In addition to her visual arts career, Lynne is also a songwriter. She worked with the Parachute Club and wrote the lyrics for their Canadian classic, “Rise Up”. The work is floated under glass in a clean black frame.
