The Solitudes of Place: Recent Drawings by Ann Kipling

Burnaby Art Gallery
Burnaby BC – Jun 30-Aug 21, 2011

British Columbia artist Ann Kipling’s distinctive mark-making process is showcased in The Solitudes of Place with a group of 43 drawings. Hundreds of tiny lines shimmer and seem to briefly coalesce into forms. Her skill as a draftsman and her phenomenological approach to vision are examined in this exhibit within larger political and artistic frameworks.captions:

Kipling’s style reveals an energy, concentration and compulsiveness that transforms her subjects, whether landscapes, animals or head studies, into temporal experiences. In an incredible act of concentration, “fascinated by the change, movement, energy and transformation of form in a seemingly static situation,” as she puts it, each drawing was completed in a single sitting. Her work represents the artistic process at its finest.

Kipling has received wide recognition for her distinctive mark-making style, including numerous Canada Council awards and grants. In 1995, the Vancouver Art Gallery featured a major exhibition of her work. Her prints and drawings have been acquired by many public art museums in Canada, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Vancouver Art Gallery, Burnaby Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Kamloops Art Gallery and the Edmonton Art Gallery. In 2004, Kipling was awarded the Audain Prize for Lifetime Achievement in the Visual Arts.
