Having lived in Los Angeles for many years prior to returning to Canada, mixed media artist Krista Kilvert residing in Chilliwack, exhibits a select grouping of works culled from several distinct bodies of work created from 1993 – 2020. Conceptually linked in their focus on environmental, technological and social changes experienced during the artist’s lifetime, the content collectively holds a continuum of relevancy today. Included are assemblages involving ready-mades such as re-purposed ‘circuit board’ garden tools. As though relics of environmental degradation, leaves, seashells and canoes cast in crystal glass lie strewn upon multi-layered imaged glass while Kilvert’s large photographic imagery is a visual narrative on the interface between man and nature. The exhibition is both visually compelling and thought-provoking in content.

Kilvert has exhibited in both Canada and the United States. Her highly anticipated exhibition focused on domestic violence, titled Behind Closed Doors has been re-scheduled for November, 2021 at the O’Connor Group Art Gallery.
