Melanie Daniel: Goin’ Where The Climate Suits My Clothes
Kelowna Art Gallery, Kelowna, BC - To Apr 4
Melanie Daniel’s remarkable paintings, sculptures and works on paper imagine a future of environmental disasters linked to global climate change. The narratives this internationally acclaimed artist conjures up pose existential questions of survival in often absurdist terms and paradoxically hallucinogenic colours. Her images are filled with angst but at the same time sound a note of hope, in the ways her human figures, either alone or in groups, attempt to remedy their catastrophic situations. After many years living abroad, Daniel has recently relocated to her hometown of Kelowna.
