Kline, Chris

Sound —

race the perimeter, or enter the precinct. Drawing presents these possibilities. It allows one to defer, to obviate a choice, to drift passively on worn paths. It also enables us to rehearse more active extensions of seeing: to survey, to partition, or to eliminate.Sound iterates and notates both tendencies at once. It describes an experience of distance and imperfect vision.

Chris Kline, born in Ontario, attended Queen’s University and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. He has been a semi-finalist in the RBC Painting Prize and long-listed for the Sobey Art Award. Recent exhibitions include the 2011 Quebec Triennial, Bright Limit at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, and The Painting Project at the Galerie de l’UQAM. His work currently appears in The Question of Abstraction at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. It can also be found in the collections of the Musée d’art de Joliette, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Oakville Galleries, and Hydro-Québec.
