"This piece was for a joint show I had alongside Caia Koopman at the Thinkspace Gallery in 2012. Though there was no particular tying theme I had in the work for that show, I did quite a few with the prescience of water. Obviously being titled 'Ophelia' there's an intention of linking her to the Shakespeare character, as well. However, more so than the literal narrative, I think of the sorrow of her character with my painting. I wanted the figure and dark water to represent a kind of despair and emptiness. I also considered my other work 'reemergence' as a sequel of sorts to 'Ophelia', as if she's lifted herself from the dark waters to a place of serenity and strength." - Sarah Joncas
Sarah Joncas was born in 1986 and grew up in both Hamilton and Niagara Falls, Ontario. Her interest in the visual arts developed at an early age, starting with the dedicated drawings of dinosaurs and lizards. Eventually the study and enjoyment of working from existing images stirred up the need in Sarah to create images of her own; ones that could reflect the world, yet also appease the personal feelings/ideas that she herself maintained. With this, her direction changed gradually from the world of animation, towards a path in fine art. Sarah recently graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design's BFA program.
