Kim Atlin: Unlikely Bedfellows
Saturday February 9 – Artist in Attendance noon to 4 pm.
Refreshments will be served.
exhibition dates: February 9-23
Kim Atlin works through progressions of ideas based on themes. These progressions become a series. A series starts with an idea of capturing light and space and each new piece is informed by experimentation and success/failure of the previous piece. The series continues through incarnations until the excitement is gone. As always it is the ideas and passion that directs the progression. Once the passion is gone, so too, is the series.
“This body of work continues exploring my urban gardening experience in the heart of a large city. These pieces are about more than gardens. They are about the confluence of man and nature, and the tension in this union.
The resilience of nature works both as my muse and my nemesis.
Kim Atlin graduated from the Ontario College of Art in Toronto in 1988. Her work is held in Ontario Government Collection, the Ontario Archives, the National Archives and numerous private and corporate collections throughout Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Chile, Iceland, and New Zealand.
