Jane Everett: Understory
Kelowna Art Gallery, Kelowna, BC - To Jun 16
In this powerfully immersive installation, large-scale charcoal drawings on drafting film create the sensation of standing within a forested landscape in the interior of British Columbia. Viewers look up into the branches of lodgepole pines, ponderosa pines and Douglas fi rs, which seem to waft and sway in the breeze. Jane Everett also introduces sobering alien elements into our viewing experience, including hydroelectric lines and pine beetle die-o , reminding us of the human impact on the natural environment.
