Russna Kaur is an artist living and working in Vancouver, Canada. She holds a MFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design (2019) and a BA (Honours) with a studio specialization from the University of Waterloo (2013). Kaur explores how the surface of a painting can reveal a narrative that addresses complex personal and cultural histories. Her large-scale and multi-surface paintings are developed through rigorous explorations of color, text, digital sketches, and mixed media.
Selected exhibitions include “Holding a line in your hand” at Kamloops Art Gallery (2021); “Keep for Old Memoirs” at Young Space Spring 2020 Online, curated with Celine Mo of VICTORI+MO Gallery in New York, NY (2020); “Leaning Out of Windows” at Emily Carr University of Art + Design (2020); “the heart is the origin of your worldview” at Art Toronto with Cooper Cole (2019); “Veil of tears” at Trapp Projects, Vancouver (2019) and “She was there for a while…” Fort Gallery, Langley (2019).
