Jessica Lin, Toronto, Canada
Jessica Lin is a Toronto-based photographic artist with a love of travel and adventure.
Jessica's current body of work is abstract landscape photography. Jessica extracts elements from her various photographs and recomposes them to result in a finished image that is recognizably a landscape, but also includes layers of texture and colour in ways not found in reality. By bringing out the magical in everyday objects and surroundings, she hopes to enhance the viewer’s appreciation of the world around them.
Jessica has participated in many art fairs across Ontario, and her work is now represented by five Canadian galleries, including the Art Gallery of Ontario's Rental & Sales Gallery. She has participated in two Artists’ Residencies – one at Artscape Gibraltar Point on the Toronto Islands, and one on Pico Island in the Azores (Portugal) – both of which have had a lasting influence on her art practice.
In 2018, Jessica was awarded Best in Show at the Ontario Society of Artists' 145th Annual Open Juried Exhibition.
