Katrina Jurjans

Artist member since 2018
Toronto , Ontario

Katrina graduated from Concordia University in 2014 with a BFA in Studio Art and Art History. In her last year of studies, she became increasingly fascinated with spatial theory and in particular spaces of transition and notions of ephemerality, memory, transformation and emotionality. Manifesting in various forms throughout the years, these ideas have been brought to the conceptual forefront of her painting practice, where they have been solidified into the visual language of pattern, layering, colour and spatial tension.

Q+A

Describe your home in 3 words

plant-filled, natural light, calm

Coffees per day and from where

around three give or take. From home, cafes close to my studio and when I'm walking and coffee smell wafts into the air

Which piece of art you've created is your favourite, and why?

I gravitate to the pieces that are created when I'm in an intense emotional space because a lot of that emotion gets left on the canvas. As I move on, my attachment will change.
