Jaime Angelopoulos: The Incandescence
September 11 – November 21, 2015
Curated by the Supercrawl Curatorial Committee
Co-presented by Supercrawl and the Art Gallery of Hamilton
Jaime Angelopoulos is a featured Supercrawl artist. Her large abstract and colourful sculptures will be situated on James Street North, commissioned for the festival. The AGH Design Annex will showcase a closer look at her studio practice, including eleven of her mixed media drawings made along the same themes as her sculptural work. Using elementary materials such as oil pastel and conte, the forms she expresses are playful, while full of human gestural characteristics. They seem to emanate an electric charge in their neon brightness, like the definition of Incandescence, one of her works for which the exhibition is titled. Angelopoulos is a Toronto-based artist working in sculpture and drawing. She is represented by Parisian Laundry, Montreal.
