Gina Bielinski holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto specializing in Art History. Her love of visual art led her to her current career of jewelry design and her independent pursuit of oil painting.
Geometry, proportion, and contour are at the hart of Gina's Colville-esque designs. Her interpretation of female faces, fabrics, and sparse landscapes reveal her love of sinuous lines, soft colour, and clean outline. Gina's paintings are meticulously executed, with a fine attention to detail. Subtle colour graduations have become her trademark style. Unusual compositions and the use of negative space give rise to forms that are composed, yet uneasy, highlighting the tension between simple appearances and hidden secrets.
The viewer is drawn into a sensitive contemplative space. Somehow, there is always an undercurrent of delicate tension. Gina currently resides and paints from her studio in the outskirts of Ottawa.
