About the artist:
Jennifer Rose Sciarrino (born in Toronto, 1983) is a Toronto-based Canadian artist working in photography, sculpture and installation. Sciarrino's work actively examines the continually evolving line between real and 3D rendered surfaces in visualization and contemporary object making. She is interested in ways the digital vernacular effects current and future modes of production, shifts in socio-economic concerns, cultural consumption/participation, and the inevitable environmental consequences, both positive and negative. There is an interest in how these new ways of imagining in creativity and actualizing ideas can affect our current infrastructure. Sciarrino has exhibited work nationally in a number of group and solo shows. A selection of recent exhibitions include Patterned Recognition solo exhibition (Daniel Faria Gallery, Toronto, 2014), NADA New York (with Daniel Faria Gallery, 2014), Who's Afraid of Purple, Orange and Green (Dunlop Art Gallery, Saskatchewan, 2014), From Nature (Equinox Gallery, Vancouver, 2013), x,y,z, solo exhibition (Daniel Faria Gallery, Toronto, 2012), trans/FORM (The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto, 2012) and To What Does This Sweet Cold Earth Belong? (The Power Plant, Toronto, 2011). In 2013 Sciarrino was one of the winners of the Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts, artist award.
