Change Makers aims to re-evaluate the relationship between Aboriginal and Western cultures. This exhibition celebrates the Art Gallery of Mississauga’s recent commitment to the study and exhibition of Indigenous art while providing diverse responses to what it means to be Indigenous today. Through their works, the artists engage with ideas of self-representation to question colonial narratives and present parallel histories while exploring relationships between the spiritual, the uncanny and every day.

FIONA KINSELLA

PUSHING PAINT


February 25, 2016 - April 10, 2016

 

 

Fiona Kinsella takes the physicality and organic qualities of oil paint as her starting point, pushing the medium to become more than surface pigmentation, into the realm of the sculptural - to grow, shift, change, to build up and to decay.
