Tide Pools Rathtrevor by Lorna Dockstader at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Tide Pools Rathtrevor
Acrylic on canvas 24 x 48
$2890

 

I am always amazed at the variety of moods that can be expressed in a work of art, after visiting Vancouver Island. I hope that the viewer of these new paintings feels what I did while exploring various locations. The thrill of standing so close to the crashing surf on Chesterman Beach, the tranquility experienced on an overcast day on the Wild Pacific Trail, and the simple joy of exploring the tide pools when the tide is out at Rathtrevor Beach. Favourite memories, revisited. – Lorna Dockstader

DEREK KASPER

 

Celadon Bottle by Derek Kasper at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Celadon Bottle
Porcelain 15.5 x 9 x 9
$600

 

Derek was first introduced to ceramics at the University of Regina in the early 1970s. Throughout his creative life, he has been fascinated with texture and shadow, and the interplay of light over surfaces that at first hide, and then reveal, meaning.

 

Dark Side of the Moon by Derek Kasper at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Dark Side of the Moon
Porcelain 8 x 8.5 x 8.5
$450

 

The “moon” style round and expanded forms are among the hardest objects to throw on the potter’s wheel, as the clay naturally wants to slump. It is so full of energy and concentrated attention that I often have the feeling that I would like to hug it and wrap my arms around it. – Derek Kasper

LINDA WILDER

 

Rise Above by Linda Wilder at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Rise Above
Acrylic on canvas 36 x 36
$3665

 

With intuitive energy and the use of bold strokes, light, and texture, Linda strives to capture the mood and emotion of her environment. Her paintings can appear vividly representational, but upon closer inspection, one can see the intimate nuances and abstract tendencies which elevate and enrich her work.

Wooded Cascade by Linda Wilder at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Wooded Cascade
Acrylic on canvas 30 x 30
$3050

 

I love painting my ‘semi- abstract forest’ series. Creating these works are always an exploration, as I never quite know what the outcome will be. The freedom from not having to do an exact representation allows for greater creative expression; making the process that much more satisfying. – Linda Wilder
