Thelia Shelton is a Toronto based visual artist who is continually creating new art while her on-going series evolve and grow. In addition to her works on canvas and paper, she has been creating digital drawings, completely changing the feel and direction of her work. As well, Thelia has been creating two and three dimensional public art works in the form of murals and sculptures throughout the city of Toronto and loves the contribution that art make to its surroundings. This website is a culmination of those works.
Faces with Glasses is one of several new series I have been working on the last couple of years. Faces with Glasses speaks to the idea of identity and perception. As a woman in her 50's, there is a feeling of invisibility. Faces with Glasses uses glasses as a mask. And like all mask, they hide, change, embellish, our true selves.
