Hello! You are listening to Curator on the Go Podcast! Today, I had the pleasure of speaking to Toronto-based abstract expressionist artist Paige Ring.
Paige was originally raised in Halifax, NS, but moved to Toronto to pursue a career in fashion design. After creating womenswear for some of the world’s top department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Holt Renfrew and Harvey Nichols, she decided to try my hand at graphic design. That career change opened her up to a love of artwork, which quickly turned into an obsession with large scale abstract expressionist painting.
Her abstract works showcase bold brush strokes and are often colourful with layers of organic lines weaving through them. Paige is a minimalist at heart, so most of her work provides a space for the viewers’ eye to rest, she likes to think of it as a moment of calm in the sea of beautiful chaos. Paige uses her work to escape the realities of the world, retreating into a playful, imaginary place where color and whimsy take over.
