Top 10 Art Shows

War, history and nature all inspired the best visual art this year, but some artists managed to keep it playful too.
KELLY RICHARDSON’S TWILIGHT AVENGER AT BIRCH LIBRALATO OFFERED ONE OF THE YEAR’S MOST ARRESTING IMAGES.
#3. KELLY RICHARDSON at Birch Libralato, July 24 to September 6
Richardson’s magnificent glowing green stag preening in a nighttime forest was one of this year’s most arresting art images in any genre. Richardson used her consummate skill as a videographer and animator to construct videos that cleverly subverted and toyed with our ideas of what is natural and actual in both nature and art.

2009 will see the second collaboration between Quay Animation and UK based Canadian Visual Artist Kelly Richardson to produce tour visuals for the forthcoming second album from Montreal based Young Galaxy.
Young Galaxy are Catherine McCandless and Stephen Ramsay. They first became aware of Kelly Richardson’s work when Stephen almost fell off his bike after seeing ‘Exiles of a Shattered Star’ at Articule in Montreal. We’re not entirely sure what he was doing with a push bike in such a fancy gallery either but hey…rawk stars, can’t take them anywhere.
An exciting extension to this project is also under development and more information will be revealed in due course. For now though check out their last two music videos and a very entertaining interview to find out more about how they have developed their sound.
