Irene Klar at West End Gallery

Painted Journeys
Irene Klar’s first exhibition in Victoria in over eleven years has finally arrived! This much
anticipated and highly praised collection of new works is inspired by the Indigenous Peoples of
the West Coast. Steeped in humanity, her paintings display bold colour and intricate attention
to textures and textile patterns. More than just carrying her blanket-wrapped figures, Irene
transforms the canoe into the foundation of each piece. As her style evolves closer to abstraction,
the canoe is deconstructed to it’s linear element and acts as a focal point.

Opening reception: Sat. Sept. 29, 2012  - 1 to 4 pm
artist in attendance

Exhibit runs : September 29 – October 11, 2012
