Far Away, So Close:  new paintings by Azadeh Elmizadeh

note: this will be the last presentation from 26 indefinitely; if you haven’t experienced it, join us! Saturdays in March from 2 - 6

“The passage of time amplified by geographical distance affects one’s response to a moment in time. On occasions, these instances can be discerned better from a far. Working from autobiographical references as a point of departure, I’m interested in the gap a painter deals with, using photographic sources; the gap in representation, between what is seen and what is felt. While revisiting a moment might bring closer the actual event, it might also lead to a more distant and disconnected response, allowing me to project my own subjectivity. Far away, So close, represents my back and forth approach; between borrowing from the past and making in the present during the past two years.”

About the Artist:  Azadeh Elmizadeh is a Toronto-based Iranian-Canadian visual artist. She recently graduated from OCAD University with a BFA in Drawing & Painting. This is her first solo exhibition.

26 is a domestic viewing space for contemporary art in the Beaconsfield neighborhood of Toronto, Canada.
