Becoming Animal/Becoming Landscape @Kamloops Art Gallery

Jan 14, 2017 - Feb 25, 2017
Becoming Animal/Becoming Landscapes looks at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery's collection through the lens of today's "post-human" discourse that questions the singularity and primacy of man, which has been the dominant view in the West since the Renaissance. At a time of impending catastrophe caused by the change in climate provoked by human activity, some say we now live in a geological aged called the AntropoceneCthe era when human activity has transformed the global climate. It is perhaps ironic that at this juncture progressive scholars have come to question a basic assumpption of the modern West, that man is a measure of all things. 

Ann Kipling:Gestural Terrain@ Kamloops Art Gallery

Jan 14, 2017 - Mar 25, 2017

Ann Kipling lives and works in Falkland, BC. Her work is imbued with the beauty and quiet of this rural area. Focusing primarily on portraits, animals and the landscape, Ann Kipling’s process includes drawing similar subjects over long periods of time, recording subtle changes and shifts in expression within these subjects. This prolonged scrutiny gives Kipling's work an unmistakable intensity, fluidity of line and graphic complexity that approaches abstraction. Her portraits are psychologically revealing, retaining evidence of a closely observed encounter between subject and artist. Kipling admits to becoming obsessed with a subject, forming a bond, then interpreting it repeatedly until she exhausts its visual possibilities. Through her repetitive mark-making Kipling suggests that one view cannot capture the complexity and changeability of a person or animal—these fields of reference are variable and constantly shifting.

 


Laura Findlay: Moving While Looking at Things That Do Not Move@ Kamloops Art Gallery

Jan 14, 2017 - Mar 25, 2017

Moving While Looking at Things That Do Not Moveemerges from the writing of Scottish author Nan Shepherd (1893-1981) and her book The Living Mountain. In it, Shepherd champions a prolonged and contemplative experience of the landscape, foregoing a hurried ascent to a mountain peak in favour of savouring the expanse of the plateau. Shepherd asserts that “moving the eye itself when looking at things that do not move, deepens one’s sense of outer reality.”
