Mike Rachlis

I am an artist living and working in Toronto after graduating from OCAD University. My recent paintings are primarily about self-destruction.  These works are often blurred, scraped back or have large sections removed to simultaneously examine self-sabotage and challenge the delicacy and preciousness of art.  My recent subject matter references 1900’s British portraiture and photography to family photos and my own photography.  These paintings are not motivated by representation and are purposely interrupted or destroyed.
