Katie Lyle creates paintings, drawings and performances that address themes of temporality and action through felt materials, actions and props. The imagery in her paintings results from a responsive process of accrual and erasure, reworking textured surfaces to define a nest of images that emphasizes the layered quality of meaning. This process creates a methodology for learning through making that extends to her collaborative performative work as well, where gestures are rebuilt in an iterative, relational approach between dancing bodies. Since 2017, Lyle has been presented in exhibitions across Canada and most recently at La Datcha (Berlin). Selected presentations include Erin Stump Projects, Daniel Faria Gallery, Sibling (Toronto); Projet Pangée (Montreal); The McIntosh Gallery (London, ON); 67 Steps (Los Angeles); Wil Aballe Art Projects, Model (Vancouver); Oakville Galleries; and the Nanaimo Art Gallery. Lyle has also worked collaboratively with Toronto-based dance artist Shelby Wright since 2014, and their work has been presented at SummerWorks Festival, Interplay Festival, the Canadian Art Foundation and in galleries across Canada. Lyle lives and works in Toronto.
