article imageToronto artist Carol Matson draws inspiration from London Special

By KJ Mullins     Apr 17, 2010 in Entertainment
Toronto - Carol Matson, a Toronto artist, used a recent trip to London, UK for the inspiration of her latest collection on view at Arcadia Gallery.
Matson's whimsical paintings capture the humour of the personal ads she observed while on a trip to London.
Her photographs on display document her love affair with the city that started with a first visit in 1967.
"My work tells a story. This exhibition the paintings are based on the personal columns from the London Herald when I was there last year. Every morning you get the newspaper, and on the weekend particulary, I thought the personal columns were quite amusing. So I decided to take those descriptions of that people gave of themselves and create what I thought those people would look like or love to look like. The photographs are all from London from two different visits."
