Jade Rude is a Toronto-based multi-disciplinary artist. 

Alternating between playful and austere, Jade uses perception-shifting tactics to explore the relationship between reality and representation. Highly-reflective acrylic mirror, is one of her preferred materials.

Text is integral part of Jade Rude's practice. Her wall sculpture "I Can See You" blurs the responsibilities of mirror, signage, art and slogan.

The functional element (the mirror) becomes decorative, dialogue becomes signage and the physicality and message of the mirror upstages the viewers' reflection. For optimal presentation, the two halves of this diptych are hung on a 90 degree angle. In this arrangement, each half of the work seems to be reflecting the other and commenting on its position. 

Jade Rude's beloved text-based pieces enliven any space and bring a smile to any spectator. 

Caviar20 has been a long admirer and champion of Jade Rude's precise aesthetic, minimal palette and her re-visioning of daily objects and familiar motifs.

We can ship anywhere. Typically when we ship within North America we prefer to use FedEx Ground. To Europe, Asia and beyond we generally use DHL. Occasionally we use CanadaPost, but will notify the client if this is the best option. 

- How much does it cost to ship?
For shipments within North America, we typically charge a flat rate fee. Many items on our site will list the rate. For shipping outside of North America, we can easily provide a quote and will look for the most efficient and economical option.

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.
