Middle of Nowhere: The Canadian Edition


South African illustration artist Kirsten Sims hits Toronto this month with a Canadian edition of her sold out Cape Town solo exhibition The Middle of Nowhere.


The show at Alison Milne Gallery is the next step in an exploration of “the ‘middle of nowhere’ as a place, a feeling, a point of departure, a visual exploration of where I am as an artist,” Sims says.


“Kirsten Sims combines the seemingly ordinary with a curious twist to reveal the whimsy of everyday life,” the gallery says in notes for the Toronto show. “The series is about both real and imagined moments, conversations, events, occasions and memories that provoke the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere.”

The Middle of Nowhere: Canadian Edition runs Nov. 13 through Nov. 28, 2015.
