LAB 9.3: Kate Wilson, Collages in Motion and Artificial DreamsDecember 4, 2009 - December 4, 2009
In anticipation of Great New Wave: Contemporary Art from Japan, Toronto based artist Kate Wilson creates a wall-drawing project exploring small contained architectures. Wilson says, It’s the idea of constructing ephemeral spaces, which permit a transitory experimentation. My work goes back and forth between computer generation and hand execution. Using as sources architectural plans, images of space junk, botanical and arthropod forms to iconic imagery from pop culture, the results are baroque-like tattoos for the gallery space that call attention to overlooked parts of our built environment while subtly altering the viewer’s experience of space. Great New Wave: Contemporary Arts from Japan opens January 29, 2010.
