Mel Coleman is a Bachelor of Arts (honours) graduate from the University of Guelph with a Major in Studio Art and a Minor in Art History.
Her practice includes the use of collage, printing, and painting that results in a balance between generation and destruction. While condemning the excess of society’s material consumption, she reveals the inescapable absurdity of human nature. Her work comments on themes commonly surrounding gender, sex, consumerism, disposability and public media in our current time and prior.
Her work has been exhibited in Toronto, Guelph, Kitchener and Illinois USA, and was also the recipient of the Samuel and Saidye Bronfman Family Foundation Printmaking Prize in 2011.
She is currently working out of Toronto.
