Roula Partheniou's current practice explores the replica and how the remaking of a familiar object can shift our perception and perspective. Her projects tend to take the form of sculptural installations that make use of hyper-real trompe l'oeil, material puns and colour cues to deconstruct the familiar and trigger a reconsideration of common forms. Reproduced to various degrees of verisimilitude, and an experiment with the edge between representation and abstraction, her objects question how we see and read objects and challenge the viewer to negotiate between the perceived and the actual. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Guelph in 2001 and currently lives and works in Toronto. She has exhibited throughout Canada and internationally, with recent exhibitions at MKG127 in Toronto (Canada); The Power Plant in Toronto (Canada); Plug In ICA in Winnipeg (Canada); Museum of Bat Yam (Israel); AHVA Gallery, Vancouver (Canada) and MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts (USA). Her work is held in numerous private collections, in the National Gallery of Canada Library and Archives and in the corporate and institutional collections of Munich Re, Bank of Montreal, TD Bank and The University of Toronto. She is represented by MKG127, Toronto Canada.
