Art that channels the INNER CHILD; created in the moment and without specific intent.

Each large-scale landscape and abstract originated from this casual and playful approach of our Feature Artist.

 

Meet Canadian Painter CHRISTINE BOYER

I had the pleasure of meeting Christine in her home-studio this past summer and watched with amazement as she unrolled painting after painting and set one on top of the next. I had come to Vancouver Island to meet Christine and see her abstract paintings.

Christine’s acrylic paintings embrace and incorporate the swirl of life that goes on throughout the studio. And no paintings are considered too precious to be painted around children or dogs and are in fact more special because of them. Christine believes that everything that happens in and around the painting is part of its story. Everything including the framing which Christine does herself.

Christine brings her Danish roots to life as she paints, and we briefly discuss the hallmarks of Scandinavian design. Minimal. Modern. Simplistic. These painting pop on light and white walls popular in these countries and now also in North America.

Large-format is Christine’s signature canvas size. Christine trained as a scene painter for theatre as part of her degree and this early experience helped break down barriers to painting large-scale in her own studio.

“Pink Sensations”

If I asked you for a word or two in a foreign language, I could bet you would know at least one even if you don’t know the language at all. Recently, I learned a new word. HUMO. It means SMOKE in Spanish and it’s the name of our Feature Artist’s latest series.

Meet Artist MIRIAM AROESTE

Miriam is an abstract artist who brings her passion for life and colour from her native home, Mexico City. In her newest collection HUMO, Miriam invites us to reflect on that space between our reality and what we tell ourselves. This mixed media on paper collection has delicate beauty. Each piece is steeped in colour while remaining graceful on the surface.

Miriam’s deepest connection to art is with colour and her use of it.

“I feel so different when I paint a red painting as to when I paint a white one. All the colours speak with their own voices, and when they are bright, I really feel my passion shouting. I transform as I work; I react to the colour, and the colour reacts to me.”

FEATURED PAINTING | On Cloud Nine | Artist Amy Stewart

art, artist, abstract-art, abstract-painter, vancouver, interior-decor, inspiration

Vancouver is home to numerous artists creating far and wide across our city, yet it is Granville Island that is best known globally as Vancouver’s arts and culture hub. Our feature artist had the good fortune of securing one of the coveted studios on the island.

Meet AMY STEWART: Abstract painter

fullsizeoutput_1b2cFrom her studio a full-height glass garage-style door gives Amy a private view of the north shore mountains and the thriving market activity as tourists and locals bustle past.

This glass front studio is set back from the road affording Amy both privacy and connection to the world outside. And it’s this connection to the outside that shapes much of the work Amy paints. Her mix of soft, cool colours and natural shapes balance uniquely with her exacting use of one single geometric line. This combination of soft forms and solid lines is the hallmark of Amy Stewart’s work.

In Amy’s newest series Sometimes Blue, these forms stand punctuated by a receding dark blue/black background.

Happy As Larry

“When we don’t address our sadness in public, and when we receive such constant messages to be happy, we end up neglecting more difficult feelings for fear of bringing down or producing discomfort in ourselves or others.”

Sometime Blue acknowledges Amy’s belief that feeling deeply requires a range of emotions including sadness. Each piece in her series was given a happy name, reflecting the truth that we are sometimes blue yet, in most cases, also happy.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Amy about her paintings. Listen in to hear about her current source of inspiration.

Five questions with Amy Stewart

1.  Artists name their paintings, how do you pick your titles?

2.  If I needed to pick out your work in a crowded gallery, what would I look for?

3.  What influences your work?

4.  When did you know that you wanted to paint full-time?

5.  You recently did an Art Pop Up Shop on Granville Island. Tell me about that?

FEATURED PAINTING | On Cloud Nine | Artist Amy Stewart

About this featured painting

On Cloud Nine

Original Painting
Mixed acrylic medium on canvas
36″ x 30″ (92 x 76 cm)

Sometimes Blue Series

What I like: On Cloud Nine is soft and organic yet grounded by linear shapes. It is deep and dark yet feels light. This painting has a calming effect for me.
