Artist Elly Smallwood
About  , Originally from Ottawa, I moved to Toronto to complete my Bachelor of Fine Art at OCAD University. I now live and work in Toronto. My paintings are intensely personal, a visual examination of my mind and body, and those of the people around me. I am fascinated by the power of the body to both entice and repulse us. My paintings focus on the parts of the body that fascinate me most; primarily the face. My portraits utilize stark colours and raw brush strokes asdelicate figures become unnerving and colours are smeared across flesh. These bodies attempt to give physical form to the images in my head; they are a rough,                                                                                           visceral representation of how I view humanity.
