KW-based artist Amanda Rhodenizer speaks about her Open Sesame exhibition "Works on Paper," which Canadian Art magazine deemed a "must-see."

The open-ended narratives in Rhodenizer's small oil paintings explore the settler's relationship to the land as part of Canada's ongoing narrative of colonization and eventual sprawl. By combining the visual language of colonial landscape paintings with contemporary real-estate photos, the artist exposes a strangeness and unease in images of Canadian land for sale.

Rhodenizer, who received her MFA from the University of Waterloo in 2014, has exhibited her work at Toronto’s Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Art Mûr in Montréal, the Orillia Museum of Art & History, the Khyber Centre for the Arts in Halifax, and many other galleries and institutions.
