This exhibition in the RBC New Works Gallery will feature seven new sculptural works by Edmonton artist Catherine Burgess. Burgess is well known for her quiet, contemplative works that are based on arrangements of found objects, geometric forms and simplified shapes. They are interplays of materiality: stone, metal and found objects, as well as studies of solids and voids. Titled with a simple, single verb, each work can be seen to express a human action or emotion. All of the works in this exhibition were created in 2011 and 2012, and have never been exhibited publically before.
