Fascinated by the composite nature of plywood, OCAD alumna Yechel Gagnon believes it holds many possibilities, many secrets in its multiple layers. Similar to a sculptor who chooses a specific block of marble to carve, Gagnon is guided by the make-up of each piece of plywood. Using routers, sanders chisel knives and grinders, she strives to unravel the existing information within the wood. Each work is a meditative reflection that often suggests landscapes, oneiric spaces or topographical maps.

Yechel Gagnon completed a Master of Fine Arts in Studio Arts from Concordia University after receiving an AOCAD with Honours in Drawing and Painting from the Ontario College of Art and Design. She exhibits her work in commercial galleries, artist run centres and museums across Canada and has two major publications to her name.
