is one of Canada’s most important and inventive contemporary artists. Her career spans over four decades and includes more than 50 major solo exhibitions, nationally and internationally. Most notably, the National Gallery of Canada and the Winnipeg Art Gallery exhibited a comprehensive survey of her work in 2010-2011.
Koop is known for charting new directions in painting, pushing the boundaries of presentation and display with her monumental-scale painting installations, in which she incorporates poetic video and performance work. Her practice explores scenes of urbanization, industrialization, and robotic technology as it interfaces with the natural world, asking us to reconsider imagery that is delivered to us through both cultural history and contemporary broadcast media.
