MKG127 is pleased to present Chanced, the second
March 19 - April 16, 2011
solo exhibition at MKG127 by Toronto based artist, Joy Walker.
"The title of this exhibition, Chanced, was suggested to me by a friend as we were walking towards a restaurant for lunch. As chance would have it, we were discussing the title just as a piece of blue-and-white polka-dot tissue paper appeared on the sidewalk in front of us. I had to stop and take a photo. I decided that the photo would become the image on the postcard for this exhibition. Most of the works in the exhibition are the result of similar occurrences -- chance encounters with workaday objects and materials that revealed their potential through minimal manipulation and happenstance."
Joy Walker is an artist living and working in Toronto. Her work reflects her interest in pattern, repetition, geometry and the ephemeral using a variety of methods including printing, photography, drawing, stitching and cutting. Joy’s work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions and is included in private and public collections. She is also the programmer of *QueenSpecifc, a window exhibition space on Queen St. West in Toronto displaying site-specific art installations.
Joy Walker would like to acknowledge the generous support of the Ontario Arts Council.
