Vanessa Maltese | Ornament Swatch

Vanessa Maltese
Ornament Swatch
Toronto, Canada: Nothing Else Press, 2014
18.2 x 6 x 4 cm (closed), 1.8 x 4 x 55.5 cm (extended)
Acrylic on wood, hinges
Edition of 15 signed and numbered copies
$550.00 CDN

Drawing on motifs that have cycled through her recent body of work, Maltese likens this hinged sculptural edition to “samples you might flip through if you were interested in ginger-breading the roof of your house or something. It’s reminiscent of a kids toy, which I am into, as it is a rather useless object at the end of the day."


Vanessa Maltese was born in 1988. Currently based in Toronto, she holds a BFA from OCAD University. She is the recipient of the Drawing and Painting Medal from OCAD U in 2010 and the winner of the RBC Painting Competition in 2012. Maltese is represented in Toronto by Cooper Cole.
