Artist member since 2019
Eugenia Elder is a Canadian contemporary artist based in Toronto, Ontario. Her images of emotive atmospheres accompanied by sharp and detailed objects convey spontaneity and insecurity, resulting in a peaceful and stable aesthetic. She cares deeply about the environment, which is why her subject matter often includes fruits, plants and atmospheres.
She has exhibited in group shows at Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre (2013), the Gladstone Hotel (2015), the Richmond (2015), the Contact Photography Festival (2015, 2016), Café AGO (2017), Forest City Gallery (2018) and Emily Harding Gallery (2019). Her photography has also been featured in the Queen’s Journal, Project Red, the Arts and Science Undergraduate Review, the Whig Standard, Arbitrage Magazine and Humber Et Cetera. Her work can be seen in the residences at Shangri-La, Toronto as well as various restaurants in Toronto. Her work has been sold through and is currently available to purchase through the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) Art Rental & Sales department. She showed at the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair (2019) and her residency is with the Akin Studio Program at the MOCA Toronto Canada (2019-2020).

Why is it important for people to have art in their home or life?
Art will fix parts of you that you didn't know needed to be fixed and a good piece of art will do that for you over and over again, in seemingly different ways
Why is art important to you?
Art is apart of who I am and it always has been, for better or for worse
