The Solitudes of Place : Recent Drawings by Ann Kipling, Hardback Book

The Solitudes of Place : Recent Drawings by Ann Kipling Hardback


This is a sumptuously illustrated exploration of the work of contemporary artist Ann Kipling.

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 centred upon the outdoors, "landscape" is not a word that can be easily used to describe her work.

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 Tovell explores Kipling's practice as a draftsperson, situating it within the historical and aesthetic context of an often misunderstood discipline.
