With no artist statement and no work titles to go off, Kim Kennedy Austin‘s current show at Malaspina Printmakers on Granville Island, Vancouver, leaves a ton of room for gallery visitors’ curiosity and interpretation to roam.
And although you can gain some insight into Austin, her process, and how this current work has developed by reading Here and Elsewhere‘s recent interview with her , I quite enjoyed the lack of definitive persuasion by the artist.
I have been wondering why that beaver interests me so;
how I hope he escapes the clutches of that obviously dastardly Mad Trapper.
And, does the trapper use those infinite straw spheres to capture his game, or are they perhaps secret beaver escape pods..?
AJ runs until February 5th 2012.
