SATURDAY 05 MAY 2012 – SATURDAY 21 JULY 2012
OPENING RECEPTION | FRIDAY 04 MAY 2012, 8:00PM – 10:00PM
Jaime Angelopoulos presents a new body of sculptures exploring figuration and gesture through abstract form. Angelopoulos’ sculptures are relational in scale to the human body, often evoking a figure in motion, or metaphorically, they allude to a heightened emotional state. Colour, texture, and form become emotive layers within each work, while narrative based titles invite the viewer’s participation, infusing ambiguous forms with personal meaning.
JAIME ANGELOPOULOS received her MFA from York University (2010), and BFA from NSCAD University (2005). She completed Post Baccalaureate studies at Meadows School of the Arts in Dallas, TX (2006-07), and an artist residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts (2006). Angelopoulos works primarily as a sculptor, but also creates large-scale drawings. Her sculptures are constructed primarily in fabric, plaster, and found objects. Angelopoulos has presented solo exhibitions at Parisian Laundry (Montreal, QC), Stride Gallery (Calgary, AB), Anna Leonowens Gallery (Halifax, NS), Meadows School of the Arts (Dallas, TX), and The Banff Center for the Arts (Banff, AL). Her works are included in the collections of The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, ALDO Group, York University, BMO, as well as private collections. Angelopoulos is represented by Parisian Laundry in Montreal. She lives and works in Toronto.
Jaime Angelopoulos gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
