About Rose

Inspired by the rich botanical textiles of the Victorian era and the designs of Japanese woodcuts, Ottawa artist Heidi Conrod has created a new series of abstract florals. This elegant painting of roses in deep pink and soft gray with a green and neutral background is enhanced by the addition of a line of fluorescent green neon. This unique work is a continuation of Conrod’s ‘Charged Line Series’ that also uses neon to great effect.

“Harmony and tension play equal roles; the lights appear at once graceful, balanced additions, whilst simultaneously acting to divide the physical space and alter perceptions of colour and form.”

Born in Montreal in 1970, Conrod attained her BSc in Biology in 1994 at the University of Ottawa. She studied painting and printmaking at the Ottawa School of Art and at the University of Ottawa. Heidi Conrod’s work is held in many Canadian galleries.
