Canan Tolon is known for inventive work in a variety of media, including sculptural installations. (She is also an architect with degrees from Germany, England and UC Berkeley, and has designed furniture.) Her approach with each material and discipline involves scrutinizing her materials and subjugating the raw elements to a test or metamorphosis. For example, to make drawings she uses a knife, manipulating oil paint over mylar sheets. Her sculpture, which can be kinetic, has employed rusting metal, sprouting grass seeds and mirrors.
