Postcards: Barbara Klunder

Nine years. That's how long this postcard has been paired with a Tom Thomson postcard on my studio wall. The duo are like a sister and brother – similar in tonal range but very different: a chair next to a phone juxtaposed next to a wilderness scene in Northern Ontario. The painting is called Waiting and is from Barbara Klunder: 12 Recent Oil Paintings, October 2-25, 2003 at Prime Gallery. Prime Gallery closed and David Kaye Gallery opened in its wake. Barbara Klunder now shows at David's gallery and her genius has turned to paper cuts. Do you feel the tension of the empty chair next to the phone? I sure do.
