First time participant in Western Canada’s largest International Art Fair
Artist Jodie Blaney will be showcasing her expressive contemporary Canadian landscape paintings at Art Vancouver 2019.
Over the past decade, the Vancouver-born artist’s distinct painting style has won praise from collectors who are drawn to her vibrant colours, rhythmical designs and bold forms. Her current body of work in acrylics features whimsical, stylized compositions that evoke such iconic influences as Lawren Harris and Emily Carr, while exploring the enchanted landscapes of her West Coast childhood. “I draw largely on memory, imagination and intuition to freely express my subjects. Places I’ve visited, remembered or imagined, all find their way onto the canvas. I paint from the vantage point of being close up, fully immersed in each subject,” explains Blaney who was recognized as a “Top Artist to Watch 2018” in the Summer issue of ArtTour International magazine.
“Her works scream raw unchained energy, perfect harmony and balance. They are a cohesive blur of realism and abstraction, binding geometrical shapes and patterns with natural forms to collectively create her piece.” Excerpt taken from ArtTour International: https://www.arttourinternational.com/jodie-blaney/
Blaney is a self-representing artist and Active Member with the Federation of Canadian Artists. She paints full time from her studio gallery in Delta, BC.
At Art Vancouver visitors are invited to meet the artist and view her latest collection of original largescale west coast inspired paintings.
