OCAD University Florence Campus

OCAD University's Florence Program is hosting a Visiting Artist + Speaker Series which brings six international artists, critics and gallerists to our international campus to engage in artist talks, critiques and individual studio visits. This unique opportunity offers students insight into how a successful international practice is developed as well receiving critical feedback on their independent studio work. 

 

JANUARY 27  JESSICA GROOME

Jessica Groome received her BFA in Visual Arts from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 2007, and her MFA from the University of Guelph in 2011. Her art examines the systems of belief that motivate contemporary and 20th century abstraction. Invested in the authentic, metaphysical potential of abstract work, she researches optical painting, minimalism, and the transcendent school of thought; her practice employs faith while maintaining skepticis and uncertainty. She was a semi-finalist in the 13th Annual RBC Painting Competition and the recipient of the 8th Joseph Plaskett Award. Currently, she is based in Berlin, Germany and Vancouver BC. Her work has been exhibited across Canada. www.jessicagroome.com

Organized by Linda Martinello, Assistant Professor / CLTA, Faculty of Art, OCAD University
