Andrea Pinheiro is a visual artist working in print, mixed media and installation. She studied at White Mountain Academy of the Arts in Elliott Lake, Ontario, and received her BFA and MFA at the University of Alberta. She has exhibited across Canada as well as internationally, and has produced numerous artist publications including Bomb Book (2013), published by Presentation House Gallery (now Polygon Gallery). From 2008 until 2011, Pinheiro oversaw programming at Malaspina Printmakers in Vancouver. She is currently Assistant Professor of Fine Arts at Algoma University in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

First featured in an exhibition titled Pulp at the Republic Gallery in 2015, Pinheiro’s Paper series shifts the responsibility of the camera as documentarian to the scanner. To make these works, Pinheiro applied paint onto sheets of blank photographic paper and then scanned them, allowing for the colour of the paint to be transformed within the bed of the scanner through exposure to light. Blurring the boundaries between painting and photography through her use of scanner technology, Paper 2 embraces accident and error while disrupting traditional notions of authorship.

This work is edition 1/3.
