Randonnée d’automne I

After her father’s passing, Shinah’s paintings took on a more emotional dimension. They are inspired by images and vibrations she perceives in her surroundings. Not just a flower, but a spontaneous emotion by which the artist shares her feelings about love and life.

BECKY HOLUK

 

Marvellous Mountain Majesty
Acrylic on canvas 36 x 36

Becky considers it a blessing to be part of the connection which artwork provides between artist and viewer, and has discovered that hikes and walks in the natural, majestic beauty of the Alberta Foothills, Canadian Rockies and the West Coast are favourite times to ‘observe, record and reflect’ for later artistic pursuits in the studio.

JANIS WOODE

 

The Novel by Janis Woode at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

 

The Novel
Vintage typewriter parts, plate steel, wrapped copper wire, patina 39 x 3 x 4
$3300

The Novel by Janis Woode at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

 

The Novel pays tribute to the writer of yesteryear when words were pulled from old sticky keys of vintage typewriters. When taking apart these old wonders of technology, clues left behind reveal characteristics of previous operators. Perhaps sunflower seeds were a favourite snack consumed. Perhaps bobby pins fell when hair was pulled trying to find the perfect phrase. Tobacco and sticky suggestions of scotch or some other favourite cocktail appear like a careless time capsule. Always, always, traces of eraser and white out can be found, telling us that the perfect phrase can be an elusive creature chased still today.  – Janis Woode

VANCE THEORET

 

Thinking of Dinner by Vance Theoret at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Thinking of Dinner
Brazilian Soapstone 7.75 x 8 x 6
$700

Vance carves a variety of subjects, but bears are by far his favourite: “Bears are like big kids that never really grow up. So I can get away with portraying a lot of human qualities in them.” – Vance Theoret

 

No Twitter Here by Vance Theoret at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

No Twitter Here
Brazilian Soapstone on Aventurine 7.5 x 3 x 5.5
$175

I like to let the stone tell me what it wants to be… when I do this the end product is so much more alive than if I had forced my design upon it! Doing this also allows the stone to work with you and puts colours and patterns in places that you couldn’t plan any better… Although I take my work seriously, I try not to take myself too seriously… so much of my work has a light playfulness about it!  – Vance Theoret
