Barbara astman bio circle
Meryl has a unique voice. She isn't making work that's derivative; she is trying things from her own experience, from her own cultural background. Her work is very honest and true to her.”

INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED ARTIST • ART GALLERY OF ONTARIO • CANADIAN EMBASSY • OCADU

Barbara Astman’s mixed-media work has been a fixture in the canon of contemporary Canadian art for more than three decades. She is a member of the Board of Trustees at the Art Gallery of Ontario, one of Canada’s most esteemed public art institutions, where her work was shown alongside other pivotal Canadian artists at the gallery’s re-opening exhibition in 2008. One of her many public institutions can be found at the Canadian Embassy in Berlin, and her stature in the arts community has earned her invitations to speak about art from the Yukon to Scotland. For 37 years, Barbara has been a professor at OCAD University, one of Canada’s largest art universities. She feels that teaching, at its finest, feeds back into her own practice. Barbara is represented by Corkin Gallery in Toronto.
