1 North Square, Cambridge, ON
Following Jaime Angelopoulos' participation in Cambridge Galleries’ the SHOW in 2011, this solo exhibition presents the most recent sculptures and drawings by an artist who is very quickly gaining critical attention.
Jaime Angelopoulos’ wildly imaginative abstract drawings and sculptures allude to human forms, and offer complex narratives through the use of materials and the playfulness of her titles. They are motivated by personal experiences and often developed through the process of creative writing. The sculptures consist of multiple components, conflicting materials, forms and colours that affix together to create a singular system. The drawings combine graphic geometric fragments, bright colour hues, with organic shapes and textures. These works are evocative of movement and in direct relationship to the body; and in their infinitely complex series of subjective narratives, in intimate communication with each other as well as the viewer.
Artist Talk: Saturday, October 26, 4:00pm
