2017 Thesis Award Show I KIMBERLY DANIELSON
Saturday June 17th 2017 to Tuesday June 27th 2017
Reception: Wednesday, June 21st, 6-8pm
Location: ARTiculations, 2928 Dundas St West
In Kimberly Joy Danielson’s body of work, Painted Carvings, we find a shared interest in allusion and varying levels of reality (the worlds of others and our own internal realms)- but explored through nods to the artist’s nordic heritage and traditions through an intuitive, sensitive lens and contemporary sensibility. Danielson’s works are as much a conversation between painting, sculpture and materiality as they are about personal history, narratives and answers through introspection. Otherworldly and delicate, we again find ourselves presented with a vantage point that does not feel totally foreign but is not altogether comfortable either.
Mon-Fri: 11-6, Sat: 11-5, Sun: 12-5
About the 2017 Thesis Award Show
The Thesis Award Show is a collaboration between ARTiculations, Graven Feather Studio and Akin Collective in support of graduating post secondary students. In spring 2017 a call was sent out across the Province for applications in search of students demonstrating a coherent body of work unique in both concept and execution. Overwhelmed by the response, we extend a huge thank you to all of the applicants and congratulate this year’s winners, Jill Smith and Kimberly Danielson for their achievements. In addition to solo exhibitions, Smith and Danielson each received a one week print residency with Graven Feather, and a studio credit with Akin Collective as part of the award.
