About

Nine photo based window murals celebrate community. Building on the success of previous years, the Town of Oakville has once again taken the initiative to invite a fresh cohort of artists to showcase their photographic murals in neighbourhood community and cultural centres. This year's theme of "Connextions" resonates with the current times, as it urges us to reconnect and strengthen our community bonds.

Kim-Lee Kho is a Canadian multidisciplinary artist of Chinese-Indonesian and British descent, exploring personal experience as a gateway to broader human concerns. She’s participated nationally in exhibitions, residencies, and mentorships; and won a number of awards.

Kho's recent projects include: Burnt Offerings, also the title of her multidisciplinary solo show at The Red Head Gallery; and a photographic series My Father’s Things which was part of the View Find[H]er exhibition at the Art Gallery of Mississauga; both in 2022. Her next solo exhibition Burnt Offerings will be at Station Gallery in Whitby, in fall 2023. Kho is a popular and experienced speaker, juror, and art educator, teaching art to adults in both digital and traditional media.

The artist offers about her work:

Human connections are the lifeblood of any community. Circulation and connection, which has been so challenging for individuals and communities during the pandemic, is represented here by the multi-layered intricacy of the tree branches. Hidden Complexity is made up solely of photographs I shot, pieced together, layered then transformed digitally. I often use bare-branched trees as metaphors for complex networks (organic, like human communities), as well as for the human circulatory system – our actual lifeblood.

Town of Oakville

The Town of Oakville is located on Treaty 14 and 22 lands, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and the Haudenosaunee. Oakville is home to many different First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. A vibrant and impressive community within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), the Town of Oakville is a beautiful lakeside town with a strong heritage, preserved and celebrated by residents and visitors alike. Since the 1800s, it has become one of the most coveted areas to live and work in Ontario with 225,000 residents calling Oakville home. The town offers all the advantages of a well-serviced urban centre with first-rate facilities and amenities, while also maintaining its small-town feel.
