Curator on the Go Podcast

Canadian artist Ravinder Ruprai works mainly in acrylics on canvas. Her paintings invite the viewer into binary worlds where layers of pattern and texture, drawn from her East Indian heritage, combine with nature, the body, and the landscape. Ravinders' paintings often use her own internal struggles as a starting point with the aspiration of 'mapping' out solutions. She firmly believes that it is through the arts that we gain profound insights into the human condition.

The works of Toronto-based artist Allison Rietta are strongly influenced by spirituality, nature, and architecture. Primarily abstract, her work has led her to explore sacred—or mystic geometry—tapping into the magic of imagination and the subconscious mind. Textures, colours, and the relationship between shapes and forms is what guides her intuition most.

Nadia Lassman is an international artist with showings in Toronto, New York, Miami, and Scottsdale, and her work has appeared in Vogue, House & Garden, World of Interiors, and House of Coco magazines.

Influenced by the Impressionists, Lassman's work reflects the happiness she feels, the beauty of nature, and her joy in traveling. She is particularly fond of water scenes, keeping her viewers fascinated by the contrasting tones found there; the warm greens and yellows paired against the cooler shades of purple and blue that nature generously shares. By capturing seaside buildings with complex architectural details - such as rows of balconies and baroque facades - she is able to explore the complexity of man-made structures along with the interplay of light and reflections on the water. Her contemporary take on Impressionism is created by adding depth and interest to her romantic pieces with tactile, textured effects, which she achieves through the application of layers of pigments, along with sand and gels. She also specializes in creating custom vacation photo memory paintings, allowing the painting to become even more meaningful.
