> DESCRIPTION

Inspired by poet Tova Gardner's poem Yizkor-from which the exhibition title was derived-Crows After Shiny Bits of Sun features emerging Canadian artist Jenal Dolson's newest figurative works. Combining mark-making with drips and pours, each painting is characterized by a sense of excess medium; the arbitrary palettes imbuing the works with a sense of controlled spontaneity. The forms in Dolson's paintings reference internal organs, ornate interiors and romantic vistas, bringing an element of humour and continuity to the works. Informed equally by the phenomenon of mimicry in the natural world and the infinite web of allusion characterizing postmodern culture, the mirroring at play amongst the works in this exhibition constructs a dialogue addressing the repetition of forms.

Jenal Dolson is an artist currently based in Toronto. She received her B.A. Hon. in Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo in 2007 and has since received the Toronto Arts Council Visual Artist Grant and the Ontario Arts Council Emerging Artist Grant. Dolson's works have been featured in solo and group exhibitions across the province.
