Portia Priegert reviews Sandra Meigs’ En Trance

For some 35 years, Sandra Meigs has created vivid, enigmatic paintings that combine dense narratives with comic elements. Her works gradually reveal layers of meaning, giving viewers insight into psychological spaces and philosophical ideas.

In 2015 she was a recipient of a Governor Generals Award in Visual Art and the Gershon Iskowitz Prize in Visual Art. Her work has been shown in close to 100 exhibitions across Canada, including solo exhibits at the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver; The Power Plant, Toronto, the Saidye Bronfman Centre and the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts, Montréal. Internationally, her works have been shown at the Bologna Biennale, the Sydney Biennale, and the Fodor Museum, Amsterdam, among others. Her work has enjoyed critical acclaim and has been reviewed in major art publications such as Artforum, Canadian Art, Border Crossings, The Globe and Mail and the National Post. She is represented by Susan Hobbs Gallery, Toronto.
