Painting is my first and last love. I love colours, shapes, design and paint. When my work engages the observer, taking them on a journey through the elements of my painting, travelling through the scene – this is what I deem a success.

MARIANNE MEYER

 

When All Is Quiet by Marianne Meyer at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

When All Is Quiet

Acrylic on canvas 36 x 48

$2500

My work is always changing, which gives me the pleasure to experiment and to move forward. I work and re-work my paintings until I reach the point when I feel that they express just the right amount of layering, structure and depth. The final colour constellations invite the viewer to find their own personal experience of my pieces. I believe that that’s what art should do. – Marianne Meyer

Aspen Grove Necklace by Andrea Roberts at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Aspen Grove Necklace

Aspen twigs cast in Sterling Silver (oxidized), 18kt. Yellow Gold, Smokey Quartz

$1080

Persephone, the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, once was an innocent maiden. She descended to the underworld and emerged a complex creature with the power to bring the earth the fruits of the hidden. The Aspen was sacred to her, and she was reputed to have a grove of them in the Land of Sunset in the West. Persephone reminds us to release our old habits or self criticism and guilt, and to face our fears so that we may believe in our own abilities and know our true self.
