W E L C O M E
It is here; surrounded by such beauty; the turning of seasons, birth, death, regeneration, all that informs my ability to create, engaged in the natural elements and the unfolding of my life.
From years of working in the anti-violence movement I continue to be engaged in creating work that speaks to social justice, using my visual voice to express the actions required for change.
I am inspired daily by all that dwells on this land, walking ever so gently, knowing full well we are care takers not land owners.
Along with my life partner, our daughters, four legged friendships, family and friends from near and far, we are blessed with a vibrant web.
I thank you for visiting my on-line studio and welcome your return.
In gratitude, Kim
For years I have photo documented the annual rites of winter, communities that form on the ice here in the north . . . the rise of the ice shack. There are many parts to the story. The construction or re-fitting, the painting and or additions that take place in the drive way or yard in the off seasons. When it's time for the lake relocation, the words are - ice is thick enough, and the journey begins to the chosen location, specific to a hopeful fishing hole. I absolutely appreciate the caricature of the buildings, each one unique, the peculiarities of shape, the array of colour, miniture homes much like a Hobbit village. Sunday dinners take place here, fond memories of time spent, the big one that got away and the warmth of the woodstove on a frigid freezing day out on the lake. This imagery is my environment. I view it every day in the safe to be out there months and I'm inspired to share it with you.
Sunday at the Shack was selected to be part of the 10th Anniversary of Art on Main Juried Exhibition, North Bay. Dates: September 2nd to the 30th 2015. Opening Reception September 18th.
