Sarah Letovsky finished her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting at OCAD University in 2014. Her work explores the intimacy of the female face in large-scale oil paintings and an ongoing watercolour series. Through the use of gestural mark-making and flat space, she contrasts the humanity of the gaze against the materiality of paint, creating a push and pull of mimesis and metaphor. She was the recipient of the 2014 Mrs. W.O. Forsyth Award for Excellence in Painting.
