Owen Marshall is an artist and printmaker who examines the way text and signage influence the surrounding environment. He will present a series of printed flags which use humour to challenge and undermine the perceived authority of flags and the significance they carry. The works will be presented at the Queen West Art Crawl on Sept 23-24, 2023, and at The Drake Hotel and the Parkdale Toronto Public Library from Sept 22-Oct 15, 2023. In partnership with the Queen West Art Crawl, the artist will provide a series of informative and performative guided tours of the works at this event.
About the Artist:
Through his studio practice, Owen Marshall examines the way text and signage influence their surrounding environment, as well as the humour which emerges when the perceived authority of signs is undermined or challenged. Marshall’s work has been exhibited in galleries across the province, and his work can often be found displayed discretely within the city of Toronto. He holds a BFA from OCAD University and was the recipient of the 2019 printmaking medal at Gradex 104.
This program is a part of the Creatives In Residence series by Ontario Culture Days.
