Greta Guzek: Between the Lines

Greta Guzek Between the Lines June 6 – 18, 2020

Greta Guzek is celebrating 20 years and her 11th solo exhibition, which runs June 6 - 18, 2020, at West End Gallery in Victoria! Greta’s joyous and whimsical West Coast paintings are familiar both in their stunning beauty and their intimate charm. Greta utilizes intricate design and vivid colours; her artwork captures the idyllic qualities that are intrinsic to the serenity of coastal life and nature.

This latest collection of paintings also draws inspiration from the poems of Robert Perry, whose anthology “The Arbutus Islands”; provide insight into life on the West Coast. By having a different poem displayed with each painting, Greta hopes that it will enhance the viewer’s appreciation and understanding of each painting and offer a deeper glimpse into her artistic vision.

Artist Statement

I live on the edge of a natural paradise where I witness, daily, the heartbeat of the earth; it is radiant. I found these same sentiments in the poems of Robert Perry, whose anthology “The Arbutus Islands” became my focus point for these paintings, seeing between the lines.

Behind the Blooms: The Making of Breath of Life

05 March, 2024 3 min read

Breath of Life began with a drawing, a simple yet powerful blueprint for what would become a life-sized celebration of nature. In the concept sketches, we see the genesis of her vision—clusters of peonies rendered in loose, confident strokes. These initial marks are the seeds from which the full bloom of the diptych would grow.
