About

From the artist's ongoing series of dress paintings, this contemporary, impressionistic style painting features an interplay of paint, lace texture and movement on the canvas. Stajan-Ferkul explores the contrasts between delicate, narrative detail and intuitive abstract painting styles. Using layers of expressive brush strokes, she builds a lush texture, luring the viewer to take a step closer. // Andrea Stajan-Ferkul is a Canadian artist whose work conveys a sense of experimentation through the use of paint, fabric collage and abstract mark-making. While not exclusive to fashion, dresses have been a compositional focus throughout her oeuvre. With an emphasis on timelessness, her series of dress paintings shift between realistic representation and interpretive impressions. In contrast, her series of abstract works embrace minimalism, considerate to a restrained palette and composition. Stajan-Ferkul began her career in fashion advertising before shifting her focus to fine art in 2000. Her work has been exhibited widely through galleries and art fairs, and hangs in private and public collections across Canada, US and Europe. A graduate of Sheridan College of Art and Design, Stajan-Ferkul's paintings can be found in numerous public and private collections, her work has been published in magazines and book covers, and prints are distributed internationally. In 2009, Stajan-Ferkul was invited to exhibit her work in Ottawa’s Rideau Hall, hosted by (then) Governor General of Canada, Michaëlle Jean. keywords: dress, Grace Kelly, black and white, style, contemporary art, painting, dress painting, fashion, couture, haute couture, texture, textile, impressionism, mixed media, fabric,
