Kim Ondaatje, Blue Bedroom
What colour is your bedroom? What makes it unique to you? How does it make you feel?
In the late 1950s and '60s, when artists felt pressure to live and work in the metropolitan centres of the world, artists in London, Ontario felt otherwise. This is when and why the London Regionalism movement was born: a group of artists who found inspiration in the allure of their home region and the beauty of the everyday. While we've had to spend so much time at home, we can be inspired by artists like Kim Ondaatje, who was drawn to the beauty of ordinary subjects and to the mystery within her own home.
