Anne-Marie Olczak

Toronto, ON

Artist Statement & Bio

Anne-Marie’s paintings explore the urban landscape through abstraction by distilling spaces and structures through the form of the grid. Details are expressed through the colour and the intersections of layers of paints and glazes. Working in acrylic demands an immediacy in the process, working deliberately and meditatively as the paint is applied.

Anne-Marie received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto and has continued her creative journey through painting, photography and most recently, printmaking. She has selected works in numerous galleries around the Greater Toronto area as well as in collections in the US and Britain. She has participated in several group exhibitions and art fairs including The Artist Project, the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair, and the Brighton Art Fair. In September 2021 she hosted a self-promoted solo show called Grid Work.

In addition to painting, Anne-Marie dabbles in relief printmaking, photography, baking ridiculously large cookies and figuring out the clutch on a VW Camper.
