Artist’s works formed one drip at a time

A new exhibition will be showcased at the Kelowna Art Gallery this week

One exhibit at the Kelowna Art Gallery is centered around pouring, diluting and building layers.

A new solo exhibition Scaffolding for Minutiae by Montreal-based artist Nikki Middlemiss opens this week.

The large works in the exhibition are all labour-intensive efforts – the many subtle layers are slowly built up by the artist during long hours of mark-making.

Middlemiss produces them by pouring and directing diluted inks and paints onto sheets of tracing paper to form tracks along the surface. The resulting work is complex with intricate lines that appear to be physically woven together.

Middlemiss’ method is strategic, but she concedes full control over the completed form inevitably remains elusive. It is this process (or the scaffolding) that ultimately interests the artist, and she chose to explore this practice in each of her selected pieces.

For more information about current exhibitions, public programming or special events, please visit the gallery online or call 250-762-2226.
