JUSTINE SKAHAN, MFA`16, Finalist in the 2016 RBC Painting Competition

The University of Ottawa congratulates second year MFA candidate Justine Skahan on her nomination in this year's RBC painting competition!
From Canadian Art:
Phenomena from pop culture to urban planning inform the paintings of Montreal-born artist Justine Skahan. Some of her recent works, she told the Fulcrum, are based in places where “natural elements and architecture co-exist, mostly in suburban landscapes.” Other recent imagery, however, focuses on the Olsen twins, Ingrid Bergman’s hair, and Miami palm trees. Skahan obtained her BFA in studio arts from Concordia University in 2010, and she is currently an MFA candidate at the University of Ottawa. Her work has been exhibited at Lonsdale Gallery in Toronto, and Karsh-Masson Gallery in Ottawa, while her master’s thesis exhibition will take place at Central Art Garage in Ottawa in August 2016.
