My view of Canadian abstraction has always involved a distanced fascination. As a new genre artist, I’m baffled at the resilience of this particular mode of painting in my native land. Why are so many Canadian artists continuing to paint abstractly? This is the single question I ask each of the artists to answer as participants in this online project. I imagine the possible replies to this question to be as unpredictable and infinitely diverse as the distinct approaches of each of these Canadian painters featured in this Little Paper Planes online exhibition.
