Really enjoy this series of oil paintings and drawings by Toronto-based artist Kristy Blackwell. An exploration of grief, anxiety and loneliness, Blackwell’s figures are depicted with wisps of gold leaf to represent the hidden beauty and strength in such emotional vulnerability. Each week our members publish work on our Submissions platform and we highlight the best of these submissions as Editors’ Picks. Learn more about becoming a member.
