Kipling, Ann
Description
Since 1960, drawing has been the sole form of expression of British Columbia-based artist Ann Kipling. This publication chronicles one calendar year (2009) during which time Kipling produced 141 drawings, each magnificently illustrated here. While Kipling’s work is centered upon the outdoors, “landscape” is not a word that can be easily used to describe her work. Neither can it be viewed through the lens of the formal nationalist tradition that the landscape genre carries in Canada. Robin Laurence examines Kipling’s attentiveness to the environment that recalls Chinese landscape painting and calligraphy. Darrin Martens pursues the philosophical investigation with a call to look beyond representation to a process that embodies the very act of creation. Rosemarie Trovell explores Kipling’s practice as a draftsperson, situating it within the historical and aesthetic context of an often misunderstood discipline. Kipling's work can be found in numerous public collections across Canada including the National Gallery of Canada and The Vancouver Art Gallery.
