Kirsten Sims – Passage

Hanging Out

South African artist Kirsten Sims is back in Canada with Passage, a collection of 18 mixed media and acrylic paintings, at Toronto’s Alison Milne gallery through April 15.

Once Upon a Time

The scenes she paints are “often a self-aware and gentle parody of the lives people portray on social media,” the gallery says in notes for the exhibition.

And, taking a break from the hyper-connectedness of modern living, Sims will “swap the sartorial crowd for big open skies punctuated with an evening star or rolling clouds. She seamlessly replaces the theatre of human interaction with the drama of a natural landscape.”

The exhibition runs through April 15. Kirsten Sims (b. 1987) is a visual artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. Her work includes editorial and commercial illustration projects for organizations such as The New Yorker, Airbnb, AD Magazine and Apartamento Magazine, solo exhibitions in Cape Town and Toronto and inclusions in numerous art fairs and group exhibitions.
