About the Artist

The deconstruction and reconstruction of the natural environment is a focus in Toronto-based Sandi Ralph’s Shadow Flight. Ralph deconstructs the butterfly by stripping away parts and colours to leave lace-like structural elements, subsequently reconstructing, placing one butterfly over another, in black and white as though the viewer was merely glimpsing a passing flight in the twilight.

Sandi is a multidisciplinary artist. She draws from the multiple disciplines of painting, photography, installation, sculpture and printing to create work that projects outside of normal boundaries to inspire new understandings of her creativity.

After a career in industry, Sandi Ralph returned to school and graduated in Honours Drawing and Painting at Ontario College of Art & Design in 1999. She won OCAD’s Drawing and Painting Faculty Award and the Printmaking Award for that year. Her works have been featured in solo and group exhibitions across North America, and the United Kingdom and are collected by financial firms, technology companies, agencies – including Department of Foreign Affairs – and private collectors. Her work is in the permanent Canada House Collection displayed in Canada House, Trafalgar Square, London, U.K. Her works are available through Open Studio, Toronto.
