Tina Newlove, she/her, graduated with Honours from McMaster University in 1996. She has exhibited across Canada in public and commercial galleries and in artist-run centres including the Art Gallery of Hamilton, The Frederick Horsman Varley Gallery, the Roberts Gallery, Toronto, The Leighton Art Centre, Calgary and the Saint John Arts Centre. Tina’s work is in the City of Toronto’s Permanent Collection and is part of the City of Hamilton’s Public Art Walk Project as well as in private collections internationally. She has been awarded exhibition, travel and education grants from the Ontario Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts and was a juror for the OAC’s Artists in Education program.
Tina Newlove offers unique and thought-provoking original, contemporary artwork for corporate and private collectors. Tina works in oils, watercolour, collage, assemblage and bronze sculpture from her studio in Campbellville, Ontario on the Treaty Lands of the Mississauga’s of the Credit First Nation.
In addition to her studio practice, Tina has regularly collaborated via live performance painting with bands and musicians since 1997, including Automated Soul – electronic music, Gregory Hoskins – singer/songwriter and Tribe of One – Canadian performance collective. As a founding member of Tribe of One she has traveled to ‘The Gathering of Nations’, Albuquerque, New Mexico, ‘The Return’, Pristina Kosovo and to First Nation Communities in the far north.
Tina’s’ motivation is similar to the driving force of James Joyce who would not allow knowledge to be simply intellectual, but included scent, taste and touch to illustrate the essence of his writing. Painting and drawing results from an awakened imagination. …. Tina seeks to reach the unseen.
