"I am an intuitive painter, I start painting and respond as the work evolves. I'm never quite sure what will come out on the canvas. These works surprised me... the color scheme, the glow. Where did these images come from?  

My work is strongly influenced by feelings and childhood memories... It took me a few days to find the memory in this. In the 80's, my mother wanted to write a children's book. I don't remember if she ever got to a story, but we would sit at the kitchen table with markers and create "illustrations" for the book. It was very 80's, the palette, the shapes - can you feel Keith Haring's influence? Dayglow colors and glowing orbs, even pyramids ala "Desperately Seeking Susan". I love the nostalgia in these pieces. These works literally feel like something my mother might have wanted to draw. They feel like I'm expressing her potential, showing the world what she could have done. I separated myself from her journey long ago... In these works, we are reconnected."

Toronto-based artist Linds Miyo is a self-taught, intuitive painter, known for process-based paintings that drift between abstraction and expressionism. Miyo is interested in the interplay between our intentions and that which is beyond our control, the meeting place of our best efforts and happenstance. She begins each canvas with textured black underpainting, a striking visual representation of the gravity of emotions past. That textural contrast, amidst layers of joyful colour, moves the eye through these balanced works. In these unique mixed media works, the dark relief of the past is folded into the multi-dimensional present day, with an engaging sense of truth, wonder, and story.  

Linds Miyo has been honoured to show her work at galleries and art fairs internationally, and is very proud to have completed studio residencies with the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto and Akin AutoBLDG.
