TOAE 2011: Erin Vincent

At the recent Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, Erin Vincent's collages, assemblages, and mixed media art grabbed my attention immediately. Erin repurposes old photos, buttons, yardsticks, security patterns from envelopes, and other bits and bobs into your next obsessions. Collage and assemblage with vintage materials can be overly sentimental and twee, but thankfully Erin Vincent does not cross that line. I especially liked her spare mixed media work, as seen in the upper right quadrant of the second image. I hope to see her work again at the next TOAE.
