Roula Partheniou is an artist living and working in Toronto, Canada. Her work is marked by a concern for the marriage of material and form and is drawn together by a strong sense of both logic and play. Using familiar objects as a starting point, she plays simple games using an object’s own inherent rules and physical properties to transform them, often employing processes such as repetition, permutation, multiplication and duplication. Partheniou graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and is represented by MKG127 in Toronto. Her work can be seen at www.roulapartheniou.com.
