Roula Partheniou’s recent work has centered on an exploration of the replica and the readymade. Making use of visual similes, material puns, colour cues, trompe l’oeil and reductive referents, she deconstructs the familiar in an effort to trigger a reconsideration of common forms, knowledge and assumptions. She has exhibited her work both nationally and internationally, including exhibitions at Birch Libralato, G Gallery, Mercer Union, and Convenience Gallery, Toronto; Truck Gallery, Calgary; Mass MOCA, Massachusetts; MSVU Art Gallery, Halifax; Plug In, Winnipeg; and Modern Fuel, Kingston. Partheniou is represented by MKG127 in Toronto
