COLLAGE ON VIEW
Leah Dockrill: Collage Woman
at the Fairview Library in Toronto, Ontario, Canada
1-31 May 2019
In “Collage Woman”, Toronto artist Leah Dockrill reflects on a range of women’s experiences and self-perceptions dating from the Victorian era, through the 1950s to contemporary times. The artist explains that many of these pieces have been created with tongue-in–cheek, and others with a touch of the surreal. She hopes that they will be viewed with a sense of humour and empathy.
Leah Dockrill has been an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists since 2000. She has exhibited her paintings throughout Canada and the U.S. and has won numerous awards for her art.
