Jim Kalnin (aka Feather) paints reminders of the
encroachment of man upon his fellow creatures and Earth
which we all share in common. He maintains his
connection to the intrinsic properties of this
altruistic, idealistic habitat. He has witnessed the
compromise between man and his environment both
virtually and creatively. Kalnin’s paintings (and works
on paper) are poignant, sincere and humbly concerned
with man’s place within the cosmos.
Kalnin doesn’t slap us towards consciousness, he
towards it. Yet Kalnin is not - nor has been - heavy
handed in his approach to the issues of global
sustainability. He has the ‘Feather” touch, as light as
a serendipitous nudge towards awareness. His orientation
to the sacredness of place remains intact. As modernity
moves in, the flora and fauna are forced to move out–a
testament to man’s excess.
To compliment, and in the spirit of the same
ideals as those that fuel
Headbones Gallery is pleased to host Kelowna busker and
organic gardener, Dale Zeich for his performance
