Adriyanna Zimmermann is a self-taught artist living just outside of the GTA. Her work, inspired by travel, concentrates on the cultural and historical factors surrounding place and space. She looks to display the significant and iconic elements of a place; the construct of its culture. Zimmermann's main technique for each project is “photo transfer” - a unique form of mixed media. She will manipulate a photograph of her own to create an abstract image. Then using gel medium, transfers the ink from the photograph onto another medium such as canvas or watercolour paper. As an artist, Zimmermann creates her own distinctive mark and provides similarity between each of her works, and great difference between the works of other artists in similar genre.
