Jade Rude


Jade Rude is a Toronto-based multi-disciplinary artist educated in Norway and Canada.

Alternating between playful and austere, Jade uses perception-shifting tactics to explore the relationship between reality and representation.

Text is an integral part of Jade Rude's practice. Like the best of her work, “Hello" blurs the responsibilities of mirror, signage, and slogan.

The functional element (the mirror) becomes decorative, a salutation becomes signage and the physicality and message of the mirror upstage the viewers' reflection.

Besides the fact that the sculpture is sexy and chic, any opportunity to feel self-critical is bumped by the light-hearted greeting. And how clever is it to encounter a mirror, that expresses its happiness by seeing the viewer.

Caviar20 first discovered (and then fell in love with) Jade Rude thanks to her iconic and hugely successful wall sculpture "You Look Great".

Years later, we are pleased to be offering this stylish sculpture as part of our Toronto20 exhibition. 

Rude’s work has been shown in exhibitions internationally as well as locally at Art Museum, University of Toronto; MOCCA, Toronto; and YYZ Artists’ Outlet, Toronto.

Occasionally we will recommend that an artwork be removed from its frame for shipping. Larger framed works are typically framed with plexiglass. We export over 80% of what we sell, so we are comfortable shipping anywhere.

When a work is valued above $2,500 usd there is a possibility of tax of 0.35%, but this is applied sporadically. There can similarly be an additional fee for customs brokerage and this can range from $20 - $65. US Taxes, duties and customs brokerage are not included in our flat rate shipping.
