Curious Lights is an exhibition of several large-scale wall drawings by Toronto artist Kate Wilson. For the past several years Wilson has focused on large-scale drawing installations in an attempt to work toward a new kind of notional intimacy that includes degraded visual conventions while inscribing as array of catastrophic imagery. She incorporates a range of visual references, from architectural plans, botanical and molecular forms to iconic imagery from pop culture. These organic and industrial materials shape the form and content of her drawings Wilson has exhibited nationally and internationally and is the recipient of many awards from the Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.
