Ottawa-born Martha Townsend now calls Montréal home. She uses sculpture and drawing to work with form: spheres, cubes, holes and lines inhabit her minimalist aesthetic. Her works are marked by a dramatic material presence – they are often impressive in terms of size, but they draw their essential appeal from the density of the material used and the poetry reflected in their form. Her works are exhibited throughout Canada, and were recently featured at Montréal’s Musée d’art contemporain and the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec. She has also created public art works in Pointe-Claire and Toronto.
