"Penelope Stewart: Pulse"
2005-04-17 until 2005-05-22
Visual Arts Centre of Clarington
Bowmanville, ON, CA Canada

Installation artist Penelope Stewart will be creating a series of poetic spaces in the main floor gallery and on the 3rd floor loft space. Her large organza photographs are like illuminated skins peeled back from the surface of buildings. They become nomadic glyphs transported from place to place. Her motivations speak through the silence of a feminized space with a politics yet to be understood. This thoughtful re-graphing of architectural forms onto diaphanous and translucent cloth allows the artist to internalize spatial memory. The ornate or structural fašade of a building becomes a language layered with natural and cultural histories.

Penelope Stewart was born in Montreal, Quebec. She received her BFA from York University, Toronto and since graduating in 1989 has shown her work both Nationally and Internationally. Key exhibitions include; Canopy, Stride Gallery, Calgary; Traceries, Edward Day Gallery Toronto; Dictionary, Kunst & Complex, Rotterdam, The Netherlands; Sentinals?the notion of the measure, Red Head Gallery, Toronto, State Gallery, Edward Day Gallery; Turning, _expression_, St.Hyacinthe, Quebec; Dream Ecology, The Koffler Gallery, Toronto; Resident Memory, Synagogue Palmovoca, Prague, Czech Republic; the House Project, Toronto.

Stewart has received numerous grants from both the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council. She was artist in residence at the Kunst & Complex, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Her work is held in major Public and private collections such as the Dept. of Foreign Affairs, Bibliotechque Nationale du Quebec, The United Church of Canada etc.

In the fall of 2005 she will be participating with a major installation, dwell, an exhibition of public site works, which will coincide with the Canberra International Architecture Biennale of Australia.
