Oxygen presents — Lylian Klimek, Rescue – My Landscape
Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to announce the opening of Rescue – My Landscape, a mixed media installation by Calgary-based artist Lylian Klimek.
Opening night is Thursday, December 20 from 7 to 10 p.m..
Klimek’s talk is at 8 p.m.
Based on her research into environmental remediation techniques, Klimek combines natural and manufactured materials to create her own re-imagined landscapes.
Through her artwork, Klimek invites us to reflect on our complex relationship with the natural world.
Klimek’s visual poetics are evocative yet open ended. Tree stumps doused in bright green paint have their roots reflected by a mirror below. Lime green netting hangs close by, perhaps to protect or entangle.
A column of orange and green swatches on the wall seems to announce the prescribed colours of fall leaves.
The exhibition is open from December 21 to February 9, Wed – Sat from 1-5 p.m.
Oxygen Art Centre is located at 320 Vernon St (Alley Entrance) in Nelson and entrance is free and open to the public.
