Congratulations to artist AMY SCHISSEL. Her April 2012 exhibition SYSTEMS FEVER at PMG has just been named one of the Top Ten Exhibitions of the year in the OTTAWA CITIZEN's yearly round-up of the best art events in the region. The list was compiled by the Ottawa Citizen's Arts Editor PETER SIMPSON who wrote:
"Abstract art is like a force of nature, and the artist’s job is to control that force just enough to make it coherent. Amy Schissel paints images of cyberspace, of the internet, cast as a swirl of vibrant colours. Her show Systems Fever at Patrick Mikhail Gallery showed that the concept works better in large format than in small, but left little doubt as to why she was shortlisted for the RBC Canadian painting prize."
