Vessna Perunovich: Emblems of the Enigma
August 22 to October 18, 2009
We are excited to bring the widely varied work of this talented Toronto-based artist to Kelowna. This exhibition was curated by independent curator Donald Brackett, and has been produced by a collaboration among several public galleries in Canada. This is also how we have published the full-colour catalogue that accompanies the exhibition. Perunovich works in drawing and painting as well as video, installation, and performance. Although her work explores deep and emotional themes (such as memory, loss, exile, the home, sexuality, relationships, and death) it is also accessible, seductive and at times even whimsical. Her use of unusual materials is intriguing and inspiring, as is her enthusiasm for the colour red.
