Renée Van Halm’s extensive knowledge of architectural forms stemming from years of study and travel have led to the development of a unique language relating to the social dimension of architecture, design, and colour. Traditional views of space are dematerialized and reimagined in synthesis with weavings, shreds of origami paper, and diminutive modernist forms. The works on canvas in this exhibition are based on the works of female artists from the 1920s, including painters such as Sonia Delaunay and Varvara Stepanova, textile artists Anni Albers and Marion Dorn, and Bauhaus artists and educators Otti Berger and Gunta Stölzl. Using experimental motifs and colour relationships developed by these artists, Van Halm reintegrates these unconventional patterns within a two- dimensional painting language that envelops the viewer, bringing out obvious and subtle associations between colour and forms.

Equinox Gallery is very pleased to present Leave the Window Open, an exhibition that considers the space of architecture and its relationships to materials, memory and abstraction in light of the after-effects of modernism. Three British Columbia-based artists from three distinct generations are included in the exhibition: B.C. Binning, Devon Knowles, and Renée Van Halm. The fields of practice of the artists each examine built environments, taking those observations and insights and transforming them into paintings, sculptures, and installations.
