Jane Kidd: Curious

Kelowna Art Gallery, Kelowna, BC - To Jan 14

by Robin Laurence

Drawing from two different series of tapestry works by the award-winning Salt Spring Island artist, the show raises our awareness of contemporary issues, such as genetic engineering and environmental destruction. Through woven tapestry in the form of scrolls and also mounted on boards, Kidd unsettles viewers with images of germinating seeds and alpha-numeric codes, and hybrid entities that combine distinct forms such as a leaf and a piece of sea coral or a shell and a human rib cage.
