Rachel Vanderzwet’s exuberant brush work and powerful colors enliven the paintings that made her a winner in the emerging talent competition of  the 2013 Artist Project, running Feb. 21-24 in Toronto.   She’s one of 14 up-and-comers selected as an Untapped Artist for the increasingly popular show.

A recent graduate of the University of Guelph in Studio Art, she says she strives to instill a sense of movement and energy in her work, “and to actively engage the viewer — pulling them in with hints of recognizability while ultimately leaving them with an abstract painting seductive in its materiality.”
