Donnely Smallwood


Donnely Smallwood, a multi-media installation artist, has taught at the Toronto School of Art since 2001.

Using found imagery and text as a starting point, Smallwood transforms a wide range of disparate materials by cutting and rearranging. She is most interested in how collage processes, by isolating and transforming images, work to alter and intensify the reading of the material. Her collage and assemblage fragments come together to form book works, collage drawings and elaborate site-based installations.
