This series of dwellings and human forms gives the viewer a whimsical look into the relationship that humans have with their natural surroundings, and also questions the impact that imagination has on our perceptions of reality.
Michael Rennick is a mixed media artist based in Toronto, where he recently graduated from OCADU for Drawing and Painting. His practice is largely inspired by memories and experiences growing up in rural Ontario. His artwork often focuses on themes of nature, folktales and the idea of the unknown. It is his way of recreating the experiences of exploring wooded areas and abandoned farmsteads throughout Canada and negotiating the relationship between memories he associates with fear and beauty.
