Ann Kipling

Drawing the Line: North Shore Works 1962-1967

Acclaimed artist Ann Kipling states “drawing for me is not a nicety, it is a necessity,” reflecting on her decades-long pursuit of the line in ink and graphite on paper. Her intensely observed subjects range from the British Columbia landscape to plants, animals, trees, and portraits of friends and neighbours. In the early 1960s, Kipling moved to Lynn Valley and the rain-soaked forests of the North Shore, a natural environment that challenged her perceptions and influenced the development of her distinctive approach to art making.
