As an architect Fraser Brinsmead has always been keenly aware of the incredible richness and vitality of city life. His paintings are home to people oblivious to being watched, people who play, work, and live in an urban context. They are familiar scenes into which the viewer might feel compelled to join in, hear the sounds, feel the crowd, breathe the smells and experience the light. Many works hint at a deeper story that will entice the viewer to elaborate, while others have layered themes that reflect the complexity of modern living.
The customer regularly visits friends in Vancouver and wanted something special to remember is the time spent in the city. Fraser accommodated his specific requests for the location, time of day and the Canuks jersey numbers on the two figures! This has to be one of the most ultimate souvenirs you could ask for!
Below is the drawing provided to the purchaser for his approval:
Fraser has in-depth experience working with clients as well as an incredible work ethic to deliver not only a beautiful painting but a custom art purchasing experience.
Gabryel Harrison's new paintings offer an harmonious and meditative break from the chaos and uncertainty of the modern world. In both her studio practice and her poetry, Gabryel invites the viewer to slow down, to perceive art as an object of contemplation or evidence of wonder. It is her belief that this simple engagement can be a radical act.
