Sidia Atabales-Schnitzler

Online Only
On her first day of preschool, Sidia Atabales-Schnitzler made a dramatic scene. She didn’t want her mother to leave. Teachers comforted her by allowing her to paint. That began her artistic career. Now, as an adult and emerging artist in Toronto, Ontario, not much has changed.

Sidia's approach investigates the varying states of being in between. While some works remain still, others weave interiors and landscapes with figures. Playing with how many ways she can connect various stages of space and time. Further offering multiple perspectives in a scene as opposed to a fixed angle. The process for each piece is different each time. Constructing the compositions can involve meticulous digital intervention, or be totally spontaneous.
