My work offers formal and textural qualities that both confound and intrigue, inviting the viewer to upend assumptions, to step closer, and to consider the renderings in new ways.
I challenge the conventions of art making in two-dimensional works that appear sculptural, and with
hand-rendered forms that may be initially mistaken for photographs or digital manipulation. However, my
intent is not to deceive; rather, I welcome prolonged contemplation in a time marked by superficial analysis.
Once engaged, viewers may sense a contradiction between rough stone and smooth flesh as symbolic of relationships (with the self or with others) or they may prefer a tension between representation and abstraction — one containing both stark, unknowable shapes and the refuge of an imagined landscape.
Free of social or gender constructs and contemporary references, my work seeks to heighten consciousness through timelessness.

Hard to Find launches a new series of paintings by Ottawa artist Anthony Tremmaglia. Influenced by observations he has taken from nature and through a process of deconstruction and manipulation, he removes their base essentials. What’s left are these grand biomorphic sculptural images that similarly hold human-like qualities. The artist’s meticulous use of light and texture are astonishing, you are immediately convinced that they are photographs or collages. You feel forced to try to identify familiar forms, to find something recognizable in them in order to understand their meaning. Instead, the works are elusive. These fused images are a whole, nearly suggesting consciousness. Weightless and isolated, these large-scale paintings become monuments; reinventing the space they occupy while allowing you to be encompassed and moved by their presence.
