Julia Vandepolder: ‘Afterglow’ | Opening Sat Sept 7, 5 – 8pm

3148 Dundas Street West – Toronto – ON – M6P 2A1

Wed – Sat 11 – 6
Sun Noon – 4


Julia Vandepolder’s new series of paintings transition from evocative subjects of collapsing and decayed urban and rural structures to self reflective studies of her own intimate spaces. Her work explores themes of time, loss, transformation and discovery. The richly seductive earth tones and textural surfaces create tension between abstraction and representational elements. The poetic stillness of her interiors is balanced with the direct and raw energy of her brushstrokes; thoughtful studies of shifting light, shadows and colour.



Vandepolder holds an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree specializing in Studio Art and Art History at the University of Guelph. She has won numerous awards including most recently the Ellen Langlands’ Memorial Award in the INSIGHTS Juried Show, Wellington County Museum & Archives and the First Prize Award in the Juried Art Show, Judith and Norman Alix Art Gallery, Sarnia. Vandepolder had a solo exhibition, Viewpoints this past April at the Al Green Gallery in Toronto and a solo exhibition, At the Edge of a Shadow at the Brant Museum & Archives, Brantford. Vandepolder has been continuously exhibiting at public and private galleries across Canada and her work is featured in both corporate and private collections including BMO Financial and Wellington County Museum & Archives, Ontario. She maintains a full time studio practice in Caledon.

This is Vandepolder’s third solo exhibition with the Telephone Booth Gallery.

Martin Pearce graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in 1985. His work deals with the relationship of drawing to mechanically produced and projected images (in this case images of trees made by Giovanni Franceso Grimaldi, here scratched into an encaustic ground). His work has been exhibited widely in Canada, the USA and the UK. He teaches painting and drawing at the University of Guelph.

Felice Koenig graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with an MFA in 2003. Her work is a meditation on obsessive gesture. Each piece is made from more than a hundred layers of paint, producing seductive, tactile surfaces that despite their artificial nature achieve a sense of organic growth. Her work has been shown widely in the USA and internationally in Germany, China, and Canada. Three of her works were recently purchased by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY. She teaches Painting and drawing at Daemen College.
