Given it is Sunday and we have had all that we can possibly take of political economy it is time for something completely different: it is time for some art. And no not just some guy you hang on a wall. Artist Mirna Backovic has recently constructed her web page complete with viewing galleries. Anyone familiar with the parks and ravines in and around Toronto will have an immediate sense of familiarity with her landscapes. Mirna’s abstracts are quite stunning in particular is her use of texture. It is quite remarkable what she manages to accomplish in terms of texture: somewhere between scraphito in clay and relief in plaster. All the images of her paintings are quite stunning.. The site contains heigh resolution images so be patient with the loading time.
