Nikitin, according to her statement, trained in design, painted, and “fell into the world of fine craft in the wilds of Nova Scotia.” She returned to Toronto after eight years with inspiration for her art, created with paper, textiles and paint.

Nikitin’s work is meant to challenge the separation of art and craft, and of pop art, low art, and high art. Combining felt, paint, markers and vintage imagery, she brings in a playful sense of wordplay to emphasize her theme of women and the false fronts they put on, and those that are imposed on them.

Gerrard Art Space is open from 2 to 7 p.m., Wednesday to Sunday.
