NIINA CHEBRY

 

Abstract painting, A Quiet Day by Niina Chebry at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

A Quiet Day

Mixed media on canvas 47 x 50

$3900

Wandering comfortably between worlds of the abstract and narrative, Niina selects and dissects her subject matter to keep the viewer engaged and questioning. There is not one technique she clings to – but the essence of her approach – the juicy layers of texture and translucent colour, creates a sense of mystery to her work.

I am drawn to the abundant variations found in nature – wild, fragile and majestic beauty… Tree, water and earth, my aim is to discover a new way to view a very old subject. I have an insatiable hunger to create – no sooner than I start with one idea when my mind meanders somewhere else. I sculpt, scrape and splatter paint in search of new colour harmonies and mark making. Textural layers reveal aspects of the original source. – Niina Chebry

BILL BOYD

Large White Crawl Glaze Bowl

Ceramic 4 x 16

$600

After visiting the deserts of Mexico in January, I drew inspiration from the cracked patterns of the dried riverbeds. Upon returning home in rainy February, I was motivated to do some testing in my workshop. I have always been interested in the more primitive, natural, less glossy aspect of what potters call the ‘crawling glaze’, as it shrinks and crawls across the clay. – Bill Boyd

Carrara Marble, Marble turntable base 18 x 9 x 4

A few years ago, my wife Nadine and I were in Florence, Italy. Walking through the beautiful narrow streets we walked past an old stone church and heard gorgeous, young voices coming from inside. They were rehearsing for a concert that night. Of course, we went to the concert.              

That night I not only heard the music, I saw the music swirl around us. I will never forget the experience. It was a few years later that I remembered that fortunate experience and knew I had to put it in sculpture. – Maarten Schaddelee
