About

Addae Nurse is an emerging Toronto-based artist whose work often involves the investigation of class and the recontextualization of race and gender through appropriated imagery. Addae's body of work explores the nexus between femininity, sexuality, expression, and anonymity. Fascinated by shadow and movement, his images are intimate and often temperamental, juxtaposing the vastness of space with the details of the human form. Addae's work has been included in exhibitions across Canada, the USA, and Europe with recent shows at Gallery Tuur (Netherlands), Quest Art Gallery (Midland), and Papermill Gallery (Toronto).
