about

Kristine Mifsud is an interdisciplinary visual artist based in Toronto Canada.
Her work and methodology considers unidentifiable found objects, materials, structural forms and context, or lack of context.
Her process is intuitive, embracing the unknowing of the objects that inform her work, and working through the considerations afforded by this not knowing.
Kristine received an Ontario Arts Council Project Grant to pursue the practice of pine and birch tar-making, an extension of her interest in materials, and found materials.
Recently Kristine’s work was included in Support Gallery's inaugural exhibition 'this will never end' in London ON, and The Sculpture Center, Cleveland, 'After the Pedestal' group show of small sculpture curated by Dr. Cathleen Chaffee, Chief Curator at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Kristine received a Bachelor Visual Arts at the University of Guelph, Canada, specializing in drawing and painting, moving to Japan, Europe and Australia before returning to Toronto, Canada in 2008.
