Currently showing: Judith Frigon
One evening while swimming, Judith noticed a beautiful water lily. She wanted a closer look and swam towards it, but when she went to reach out for it she became tangled in the slimy stems below. Feeling panicked and scared she prayed for escape. Something told her to stop struggling, to relax, and float peacefully. She listened and found her release. This incident prompted her to research water lilies and their symbolism. These beautiful flowers that grow out of the mud are often referred to as a symbol of peace, rebirth, enlightenment and good fortune. Informed and inspired, Judith created a series of acrylic paintings honouring the Nymphaea. Judith is a graduate of the Alberta College of Art. She has worked as a layout artist, fashion illustrator, and as a commercial artist in advertising. Currently, she teaches art at St.Thomas Aquinas High School.
Upcoming Exhibition: Anne Gudrun
From a young age Anne Gudrun has intuitively observed how lines, colours and shapes define the essence and personality of things. As an artist she explores her subject from her own unique vision of the world, and her paintings are interpretations and expressions of what she sees and experiences.
Whether creating the figurative representation of a person or the abstraction of a flower, she explores the interactions between the shapes and colours on canvas; each colour and shape becoming its own character and contributing to the work as a whole. Her paintings reflect the beauty of nature with bold vibrancy and an innate sense of design.
Born in Toronto, raised in North Vancouver, Anne Gudrun attended Art College in Norway and her work is in private collections in both Norway and Canada.
