"Kindred: Artists Relfect on Relations and Relationships"
2006-01-05 until 2006-01-29
Cube Gallery
Ottawa, ON, CA Canada

"Kindred" is the next event at Cube. An intriguing group show exploring the theme of relations and relationships. Lovers, enemies, children, mothers, fathers. kinĚdred n.: A group of related persons, as a clan or tribe. A person's relatives; kinfolk. Concepts surrounding "kin" and "Kindred" are pretty wide open. Who is your tribe or kin? Is it only by "blood" that kinship takes place or can it be with others even other objects?Artists featured in "Kindred" are: Pam Connolly, Paul Elter, Bruce Garner, Jennifer Gibbs, Karina Kraenzle, Reid McLachlan, Cynthia O'Brien, Esther Schvan, Oleh Sirant (Toronto), Tiffany Teske, and Victoria Wonnacott (Montreal)

From Elter's vision of our relationships with everyday objects, to Teske's moving meditations on pregnancy, this show will feature eleven notable artists and their reflections on the theme of what it is to be "kindred". Garner's circus-like bronzes are counterpointed with O'Brien's organic abstract ceramic sculptures. McLachan's haunting figurative paintings of relationships are echoed in Kraenzle's equally haunting photo-based explorations of family and Schvan's bold paintings of lovers. Gibb's beatific paintings of sisters are reflected in the equally steadfast photographic portraits of family by Sirant. Connolly and Wonnacott both deliver striking canvases of their children and family with quite different results.
