Owens Art Gallery

Andrea Mortson is a painter who has lived and worked in Sackville since 1997. Andrea describes her practice as landscape-based, including the exploration of the Classical subject of the figure in the landscape. Drawing on art-historical references, Andrea breaks down traditional approaches with framing devices and repeating motifs that disrupt the order of the world, creating images that are mysterious and at times unsettling.

Her work has appeared in solo and group exhibitions at The Ottawa Art Gallery; Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto; Edmonton Art Gallery; The Confederation Centre for the Arts, Charlottetown; and Owens Art Gallery, Sackville among others.

 

In 2012, her work was included in Oh Canada, a major survey

of contemporary Canadian art organized by the Massachusetts Museum of

Contemporary Arts (MASS MoCA) in North Adams, Massachusetts. She is originally from Toronto.
