TORONTO ARTIST KIM BENOIT- THE FRENCH COLLECTION

Kim Bonoit Artist Emerging artist Kim Benoit, who was selected as an artist-in-residence at the Château d’Orquevaux in France in 2018, will exhibit her France work in the exhibition “The French Collection”.

 
“The 2018 season received an overwhelming response from applicants all over the world and Kim’s submission stood out.” wrote Château d’Orquevaux owner Ziggy Attias. The Château’s mission is to select 10 artists who desire to grow and continue their journey of artistic expression. “I am very proud to have been selected and I enjoyed collaborating with the other artists. I’m very excited to be able to present my new paintings.” says Kim.

 
“The French Collection” depicts an in-depth expression of mental health, reflecting elements such as mood, remission, recovery and the artist’s own perception of the inner workings of the brain. The visual experience seeks to provoke emotions from soothing to disturbing.

 
“Mental health issues are a recurring theme in my body of work…” says Kim, “…each piece is relatable and stigma-reducing, my artwork can be considered a self-portrait.”  Mental health awareness is a cause close to Kim’s heart as she has been diagnosed as Bipolar.  Kim is a wife and mother, television director, and retired amateur boxer from the Cabbagetown Boxing Team.

 
Opening night of the “The French Collection” is Friday April 26, 2019 7 pm. The exhibit is being held at CABINET Showroom, 354 Davenport Rd.
This public and free exhibition runs from April 26 to May 10, 2019.
