“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.

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?

About this featured painting

On Cloud Nine

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.

In The Studio With Artist Gina Sarro

Stylist Meets Artist | COLLABORATION

Have you heard the phrase, “there is no accounting for taste?” Essentially it means that we like what we like.  Many of us have strong feelings about colour, design and style, and art is no exception.

Recently, I met local Vancouver artist Gina Sarro and one look at her paintings told me that I needed to see more. Know more. And share more.

This art speaks to me. Gina paints both abstracts and abstract landscapes. Her work is both acrylic and oil, on canvas or wood panel and her unique gift is that she paints as comfortably in soft muted palettes as bold daring ones. Both styles are amazing!

Gina Sarro Landscapes and Studio C are collaborating on a regular Instagram feature during the month of May. Simple art styling tips and outstanding, colourful modern art is coming your way.

Sneak Peek

turn that art

When Gina and I met for this photo shoot we were on the same wavelength … do what it takes to make art feel at home in its setting – and in some cases that means turning an abstract upside down! It’s an abstract – position it to its best advantage and that might be different depending on what else is in a grouping. Here we paired Gina’s green linear painting with fresh white hyacinths in an ivory-coloured ceramic vase.


Comments are open. And we really want to know, “Do you have a favourite?”
