Artist Statement

The Magdalene series was created to unfold and celebrate the stories of women who, in the last century had lived life in various capacities.These portraits bring grace to the unsung and the often forgotten but also the brave, the fearless and the tenacious women who helped craft the last century. Historically, women's roles in society have been overshadowed and their work and identities have been relegated and determined by men. Their very worth though, should be self determined and not be by societal constructs which have largely boxed women in for centuries. Grace should be bestowed on all women, regardless of their circumstance and standing, hence, the creation of the Magdalene series.

Artist Biography

Adele Knowler is a Canadian visual artist who specializes in contemporary figurative painting and pleinair landscape art. She was trained professionally with a BFA (Laval University, Quebec, CA), an MFA (University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB,CA) and a B.Ed (University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, CA).

Her passion for drawing began at an early age, where she was often told to focus instead of scribbling on sides of textbooks, notebooks and anything else that would hold a pencil mark. She thoroughly enjoyed her post secondary training where her love of painting and thematic series format blossomed.

After completion of her professional art studies, Adele started her formal exhibition career at Vik gallery in Edmonton, Alberta and has exhibited both nationally and internationally for the last 30 years. Her works are in collections in Canada and the United States.
