Elissa Cristall Gallery presents Amanda Reeves: New Paintings
Until November 3, 2018

Elissa Cristall Gallery presents New Paintings by Amanda Reeves whose colourful yet subtly nuanced abstract paintings invite the viewer to engage in the slowed contemplation of looking. With meticulous preparation, the varied layers of acrylic wash stand as a visual ground for the precise geometric shapes overlaid. The desire to secure the paintings in focus is thwarted by their bright colours and tonal shifts; the floating and popping effect of the flat painted shapes confuses their spatial relationships and the layers become indistinct.

Kurbatoff Art Gallery presents Reinhard Skoracki: The Taught Ignorance
Until November 6, 2018

Reinhard Skoracki’s sculptures illustrate the essence of what it means to be human. His bronzes use the human form along with humour and satire to express social and political views. `My sculptures/figures are launched against a backdrop of social or historical drama. We have no choice but to constantly witness time’s passage within us and around us. At first glance, the toy-like sculptures seem supremely the gift of this time. This is a camouflage,` says Skoracki.  Read more.

Ian Tan Gallery presents Elyse Dodge & David Pirrie: The Mountain Home
November 3 – 30, 2018

As citizens of Vancouver’s lower mainland, artists Elyse Dodge and David Pirrie live under the shadow of the coastal range. Their works are topographic, expressive responses created in fascination of these towering rows of frozen rocks, paintings punctuated by bold colour and visual analyses of their geographical features. Both artists interface with these sublime mountainous landscapes and develop their works through a process mediated through the body, the lens, the screen and finally paint. Read More.

Elissa Cristall Gallery presents Small Pictures For Small Spaces
November 10 – December 1, 2018

Ideal for condo dwellers or homes with scarce wall space, Small Pictures For Small Spaces  features the small-scale artwork of Mara Korkola, along with four other artists, including Jeroen Witvliet and Lesley Finlayson, Camrose Ducote, and Julie Himel.

Featured artist, Mara Korkola, creates luscious and textured oil on panel nighttime scenes in single, diptych and triptych formats.  Late evening is Korkola’s signature time of day. This is when she prefers to paint as it allows for uninterrupted sessions and working wet on wet, a technique that gives her paintings their lush and fluid surfaces. It is also her favourite time to photograph cities, when streets are devoid of human traffic and the lights emanating from buildings, headlights and street lamps appear jewel-like against the black sky. Korkola documents her paintings on foot with a focus on the intersection of nature and cities. The interplay between trees and artificial light is perhaps what excites her most, prompting concentric, impasto brushstrokes in electric colour.

Bau-Xi Gallery Vancouver presents Cori Creed: Tapestry
November 15 – 28, 2018

Vancouver born and based Cori Creed captures the coastal landscape with joy and vitality in her art. The wealth of texture and colour in the Canadian landscape provide Creed with the perfect reference for an exploration in painterly process and expression. Reflections of tangled branches observed while canoeing on a tranquil lake; the graphic contrast found in a grove of birches; shadows cast over jumbles of rocks and driftwood on West Coast beaches; fields of wild grasses and blooms–all lend inspiration to Creed’s work. Read More.

Kurbatoff Art Gallery presents Jane Bronsch: New Works
November 15 – 29, 2018

A Vancouver-based artist, Jane Bronsch holds Masters Degree in Fine Art. She has been successfully exhibiting her work nationally and has her paintings in many private and corporate collections. “With my life-long passion for visual arts I have never been too appreciative of talk around it. I am a believer in an non-expert eye. Nothing can teach you to admire, dislike or remain indifferent to what you see. Some history around the piece or the artist could be entertaining at times, but will not help your soul feeling touched by it. Your eye stopped and the process has begun. The slight impulse pulled out of your memory a similar scene, familiar warmth, a momentary emotion, and you are reliving it again. That is all I am hoping for. Enjoy if you do. I certainly had while working on it,” says Jane Bronsch.  Read more.
