Shows

Adrienne Dagg. Nesting Grounds

Toronto artist Adrienne Dagg – a 2020 MFA graduate from the University of Alberta – has exhibited internationally and, from June 5th to 19th, will have her first show through Toronto’s Bau-Xi Gallery, both in person and online.

‘Domestic interiors are featured heavily as backdrops in Dagg’s painted scenes,’ we read, ‘and figures are modeled in unconventional positions, juxtaposed against outdated furniture and relics.’

Dagg creates a unique type of collage using different painting techniques. In a gallery Artist Q and A, Dagg reveals: “I use collage as a way to brain-storm and sort through the visuals in my head. The simple act of combing, cutting and changing readymade images before my eyes stimulates my imagination and helps guide me towards the narratives that I wish to use and paint.”

And, later, when asked which part of her process would most surprise viewers, Dagg answers: “I think the amount of change that happens to a piece from start to finish can be pretty surprising to some because I work in such a representational manner. My paintings can be pretty abstract in the beginning as I tend to work out everything directly on the canvas. it’s a very fluid process and I don’t always know how the painting will turn out in the end, so I like to take photos of the work at various stages of development to remind myself of the journey that the painting took me on once complete.”
