Tina Polawski
Inaugural Drawer’s Selection
There is more to this than meets the eye. That is, the art, the practice and the
process for Tina Poplawski's imagery are prepared long before brush touches
paper. The generation of the image begins in the wetlands

The natural leaves, much like a water lily, vulnerable and extracted from their
watery homes, quickly turn color and die. Tina collected leaves from her country
habitat and carried them back to her Toronto studio in large Tupperware
containers of water. Still, despite her coddling, they were shocked and changed

Poplawski's effect upon them has already been put into process. Her
photographing the leaves passes them through another stage of transformation;
with the willful act of freezing their existence in time. Then there is the culling, the
digital manipulations and the choice of format and composition. Tina goes for a
simple, dramatic memorable showcase of leafy individuality. Now, her hand
comes into play with the combination of her natural talent and the nurturing that
she has exposed her ability to; Tina Poplawski is a very good watercolorist. We
marvel at her technique and are further impressed by the visual phenomena

Quantity reinforces the impact. There were originally twenty leaves (with their
colors now restored to vitality by water) which were presented on their twenty
pristine white 'leaves' of paper

Once established as unique objects and divorced from their habitat, the images
grow once again, this time with associative properties. The trail of nibbles that the
bugs left as they ate their meandering pathways through the leaves, can be
compared to electrical, technological, digital or mathematical systems or
programs. As formal shapes, each leaf glows like a semi-precious stone as it lies
on its delicate shadow. Since being exposed to Tina Poplawski's artfulness, the
humble wet leaves overshadowed their origins and became works of art
