Vancouver arts events. Glacial Pulse by Joel Masewich at Kurbatoff Gallery. May 8 – 22, 2014. If you have the chance, don’t miss this exhibition, Yareah friends. It’s worth!
A unique collection of acrylic, stainless steel and copper on canvas landscapes.
Joel has been a professional Canadian artist for the past 25 years, known mainly for large colourful abstract paintings. In recent years the incorporation of stainless steel and copper has dramatically changed the work. Often a combination of abstract and representational elements, the new paintings capture his intuitive response to nature.
Joel is an internationally recognized artist and has his works in numerous corporate and private collections.
`I realize out walking on the western land the action of ice, particularly glaciers,created a vast sculptural landscape. This is my true inspiration. I take watercolours, a sketch book and a camera to try and capture the scene, a living sculpture waiting to be explored. Mountains, canyon areas, watersheds – all have led to the large scale work included in this exhibit. John Muir, the conservationist, often walked right off into the land to explore and revive his spirit. A heartfelt connection to nature, we all need this placement. I am trying to echo that inspiration with my recent paintings.` Joel Masewich.
OPENING RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST IN ATTENDANCE ON SATURDAY, MAY 10TH, FROM 2 TO 4 PM.
Kurbatoff Art Gallery Ltd. 2435 Granville St. Vancouver, BC V6H 3G5, Canada.
