" Silence is a concept that represents the allure of a place, how one can be drawn to enter a space by the inherent power and the dynamic energy that it exudes … how we are pulled closer to the warmth/energy of a roaring fire … the way the light falls through a window, illuminating the air … the silent ephemeral atmosphere between the things we see and touch".

 

As participants on this earth, we are in an active search of ecstatic moments that move us ...

Oct 27, 2008 – Oct 29, 2008

For the past few years I have been privileged to experience unique travel adventures. My painting journeys have taken me from the high Arctic down to Antarctica on board Russian icebreakers. I've enjoyed autumn seasons from the Laurentides Mountains of Quebec, to the southern Andes in Patagonia, and back to my cabin on Atlin Lake on the edge of the Yukon and Alaska. 

 

As always, I devoted significant time to painting pleine air in locations that provided me with new ...

Doug Robinson - Wonderland
Doug Robinson

Oct 21, 2008 – Nov 08, 2008

"The artist provides us new ways of seeing the ordinary."

Doug Robinson's beautifully constructed contemporary paintings merges traditional techniques with photo realism to depict the common place. Upon examination, the ordinary, is not really so ordinary.

Robinson's exhibition "Wonderland" is a combination of contemporary realism, classical composition and use of optics with a modern sensibility.

The painter thinks of these works as "broken narratives", almost like Ro ...

City Trees, Other Voices
Katherine Surridge

Jul 22, 2008 – Aug 09, 2008

I see city trees as markers of how time passes; many were here before I was born and some will be here when I'm gone. They are like protectors; they provide shelter, oxygen, a stable ecological environment, and a sense of peace. Historically they have impacted art and spiritual ideologies. 

The trees in my paintings symbolize the spirit and are metaphors for the people in my life. The words layered over the trees are from poems I have written, about the people in my immediate cir ...

'The Architects of Heaven' series was so named after reading the lines 'Composer, sculptor, painter, poet, prophet, sage - these are the makers of the after-world, the architects of heaven. The world is beautiful because they have lived. Without them, laboring humanity would perish' - from 'As a Man Thinketh' by James Allen.

Though the above lines referred to the artist directly, I felt they also applied to the pilots and their crews who lost their lives in WWII, having made the ...

Jun 07, 2008 – Jun 28, 2008

My passion for art making has always played a large and important role in my life, I have felt the need to convey ideas and thoughts pertaining to one's life journey. Passages of time, present, past, intimate, non intimate, historical passages, rights and wrongs - all these things essentially have been witnessed in my art. I fight for the under dog, the person less heard and I transform these thoughts into art works. The idea to Transfer - from one form to another allows us entry into the not ...

'Some might like it for the romance. Some might like it for the trance-like euphoric state.

Since it's inception in 1935, the Vienna Opera Ball (Wiener Opernball), regarded as one of the most decadent events on the planet, has been taking place on the Thursday preceding Ash Wednesday. The event, held in the Vienna State Opera house, plays host to Austria's high society, invited celebrities, politicians and business elite from around the world. Since the conservative Bavarian minister ...

Apr 22, 2008 – May 10, 2008

New paintings as well as paintings from a previous series, Peintures, are combined exclusively for this exhibition. Many of the formal aspects and experimentations found in my current practice are well represented here. These elements have their roots in two other past series: Chronochromies and Barbeaux sur fond gris et jaune.

Olivier Messiaen's lavish music set the tone for the creation of many pieces found in the Chronochromies series dating back to the Fall of 2006. Many works wer ...

The Elliott Louis Gallery presents their third Woycik solo exhibition, and the first in the gallery's new location on East First Avenue. "Gentrification", Woycik's latest collection of paintings, records the heart of Vancouver's earlie ...
