Julia Vandepolder: Afterglow, Sat Sept 7, 5 – 8pm @ Telephone Booth Gallery, Toronto

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

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.
