December 8 – January 12, MARION SCOTT GALLERY presents Edward Epp: Passage/Paysage
Posted on 27th November 2018
Kardosh Contemporary at Marion Scott Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Edward Epp. Opening December 8 and continuing until January 12, Edward Epp: Passage / Paysage will comprise over 20 new and recent works by the British Columbia-based painter. The majority of the paintings capture various points of the majestic northern BC landscape, reflecting the artist’s growing interest in simplified forms and expressive abstraction. The exhibition will also include a number of recent abstract collages, some of which are assembled from older paintings.
Edward Epp was born in 1950 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He studied fine art at the University of Saskatchewan, graduating at the top of his class with an MA in studio art. Thereafter, he made a living teaching art to young people, producing and exhibiting his own work whenever possible. In 1981, Epp and his wife, poet Leanne Boschman, moved to Liberia in West Africa, where they worked as teachers, remaining there until civil unrest prompted their return to Canada in the mid 1980s. In 1988 they decided to settle in Terrace, a small town in northern British Columbia, eventually moving to the nearby coastal community of Prince Rupert in 1999. Epp currently divides his time between Vancouver and Prince Rupert.
