A Question of Belonging, 2001
Acrylic on panel - 9 x 20 inches
Collection of Mr. M. Guy Fortin
Donna Shvil graduated from the BFA program at Concordia in 1986 and received her Graphic Design training at Dawson College, graduating in 1989.

"Personal involvement with the subject is crucial in placing the subject into the world of my work. The intimate nature of this relationship, and respect for the living subject, are guides for the representational concerns."

Artist Statement

The dark, spatially ambiguous grounds succeed in counterbalancing the direct presentation of the figure - an art-historical convention retrieved, in this instance, to invite the spectator to enter and apprehend an emotional immediacy uncommon in contemporary representation.
