BIO

Paige Quinn is a Guelph-based multidisciplinary artist. In her artwork, Paige has been exploring the idea of reuniting and reconnecting with nature, either in relationships, in death, or in bodily transformation. The figures in her paintings are caught in the act of transformation and spiritual catharsis, becoming whole again as they connect to the earth and other creatures. They move and blend with their background in a process to become closer spiritually with the unknown. Her artwork often draws from her experience tree planting in Northern British Columbia and her background in Ecology.
