Karen Goodfellow: River Bends and Totem Ends
Sept. 18 – Oct. 31
PMAG welcomes award-winning contemporary artist Karen Goodfellow’s solo exhibition ‘River Bends and Totem Ends’, a collection of mixed media sculptures and paintings. Pieces reflect the themes of the cycle of nature and wood as it relates to her mixed ancestry – colonial settler mixed with Katzie/Stó:Lō and Squamish ancestry. Currently residing in Oosyoos, Goodfellow draws inspiration from her fascination with the semi-frozen Similkameen River. Rivers, which are like veins carrying the life force, are depicted in some of her assemblages and are made by methodically building layers of various sands, pebbles, dyes, paints and inks to mimic river beds and it’s flowing configurations. Her artwork is experimental, and yet thoughtful in her methods, use of found materials and in paying homage to her heritage and the nature that surrounds her.
Karen Goodfellow has her Certificate in Fine Art from the Emily Carr University of Art & Design. Her work can be found at Nk’Mip Winery Gallery and Springbrooke Retreat Centre in Langley, BC. In 2007 she placed 2nd Place in the Peace Hills Trust National First Nations Artist contest and 3rd Place in 2011. She is currently working on publishing her first art book highlighting her pieces from 2002-2019.
