How do you write about an artist who refused to be contained? Roy Kenzie Kiyooka was a Canadian artist and writer who gifted an extensive body of work that unfolded in nearly every dimension of media. Throughout his life, he continued to redefine his context for articulation. His early success and recognition as a painter and poet expanded to include a practice in photography, sculpture, film, performance, and music improvisation. But his compulsion for articulation also manifested as a resistance toward resolution and an embracing of its provisionality.
