Chris Siems

I am a Toronto based artist working with acrylic on canvas. I am moved by colour and it has a tremendous impact on my sense of wellbeing.

While I have only been painting since 2017, I have a long history with art and design having previously taken foundational studies through OCAD, as well as focused woodworking through Passion for Wood. I have worked with multiple media including wire, resin, wood, plaster and most recently acrylic on canvas. Principally, I paint in abstract where colour is primary feature. Although I do occasionally paint figuratively, many viewers identify figures, and in particular faces, in my abstract work which have emerged purely at a subconscious level. Regardless of figurative or abstract, my paintings are expressions of my emotions.
