new work by Jenal Dolson
Tempus Projects presents Artificial Paradise, new work by Jenal Dolson in our Project Space. Jenal Dolson is the third artist in residence to spend one month in the Tempus Projects residency program, and to have an exhibition housed in the Project Space for one month following her residency. Dolson’s paintings are loosely based on a framework of landscape with notions of place, time, memory – a metonymy based in abstraction. Referencing themes of memory and sentiment of object/place, she abstracts perspective in a way that puts aerial views together with horizon lines and still make reference to the foreground, middle, and background as well as interlacing the systems of classifying maps in a choroplethic/geologic way.
Jenal Dolson graduated from the University of Waterloo with an Honors B.A specializing in Painting. She has been living and working in Toronto for the past 7 years. She is a recipient of the Ontario Arts Council Emerging Artist Award, Toronto Arts Council Visual Artist Project Grant, and the Ontario Arts Council Exhibition Assistance Grant. She has exhibited in Canada and the U.S.A.
Exhibit Dates: February 11 - March 10, 2017
