Monica Tap is an artist whose many activities involve exploring questions of time and representation in painting. Her practice opens up a space between landscape and abstraction, and navigates the terrain between painting and other media. Her current work is based on Quicktime videos of the landscape captured from buses, cars and trains. Over the past fifteen years her canvases, which are conceptual and systematic investigations into the codes of pictorial illusionism and perception, have been exhibited in Canada; London, England, and New York. She is the recipient of many grants and awards, most recently from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada for her project, Translation as a Strategy of Renewal in Painting. Tap’s work is represented in private, corporate and public collections in Canada and the U.S. Originally from Alberta, Monica Tap completed her BFA (1990) and MFA (1996) degrees at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. She lives in Toronto and is a Professor at the University of Guelph.
