October 4, 2012—October 27, 2012 | Reception Thursday, October 4th, 6-8PM
James Harris Gallery is pleased to announce Facing North, our third exhibition of work by Tania Kitchell. The artist continues to explore art practices that deal with her immediate environment. A native of Canada, Kitchell has been meticulously recording her personal observations of weather and plant life in the cold arctic regions for almost a decade. Facing North presents a delicately rendered, tactile recapitulation of Kitchell’s documentation of weather sequences and flora from a specific geographical region in Ontario, Canada. The exhibition features 3D plastic sculptures and textual works on paper that come together to simulate an ethereal meteorological and taxonomic lab.
