VICTORIA, British Columbia
am planning a retrospective exhibition called “Explorations: Past, Present and
Future” to open
at the Gage Gallery Collective at 2031 Oak Bay Avenue in Victoria.
I am excited about this opportunity to show some of the twists,
turns and adventures my painting journey has taken since I completed a four year
diploma program at Victoria College of Art in 1982. Although I did a number of
studies before that including all the way back to age 12 at the Vancouver School
of Art, age 16 with Charles Stegemen and Francois Andre and age 17 with a
Scholarship to the Banff School of Fine Art, I believe the College was the most
solid step towards producing serious work.
planning to exhibit a few special samples of a number of steps taken thru the
years, some very experimental, some impressionistic, and some leaning more to
abstraction before eventually arriving at my current botanical and landscape
style of painting. Where to from here??? Come and see.
is in a constant state of revision.
If you find anything that doesn't
work or you don't like, please let Kirsten know.
