FLY is in awe of Toronto-based artist DONNA WISE who came to contemporary abstract painting late in life but whose output exceeds that of so many younger artists. www.artbydonnawise.comDuring Covid lock-down, Donna retreated to her studio and created gorgeous, lush acrylic-on-canvas masterworks as well as experimented using paper as a medium. And the results were a series of extraordinary artworks – Road to the Moon (60″x60″) – full size & close-up-images and From the Sea (48″x48″)-full size & close-up detail plus Shadow Play (40″x40″) – full size & close-up detail …and her paintings on paper were equally as exciting…here’s Triumphant (below)and this red one is called Celebration.FLY is thrilled to share the news that Donna has been selected to showcase her work (below – “Chantilly Lace” and “Numbers of Music & Poetry”) at next month’s ArtBox Project showcase in New York City, so Donna is hoping to attract collectors in the Big Apple (her work is already in private & corporate collections in Miami and San Francisco).
FLY wishes Donna much success with her stunning paintings in New York and here in Toronto. You can check out 2 of her canvases in person at the Westmount Art Gallery in Etobicoke, and watch for news of upcoming exhibitions during the summer months on her Fcbk & Instagram (linked via her website).
