New work from Pierre Giroux!

Our Gallery in Victoria has received new paintings from Pierre Giroux just in time for the holidays! Head over to Pierre's artist page to view more new arrivals.

Pierre’s artwork celebrates the spaces in which we inhabit, drawing inspiration for his interiors from homes in the area he lives and the grand rooms and estates found in Europe, particularly France.

“Classical architecture, from rural homes found in the Canadian countryside, to French and Italian vestibules and drawing rooms, these are the foundations of my work. The paintings play upon the fine line between reality and slight surrealism, always drawing upon the viewer to move within the rooms. Streams of light poke through windows and doors into dim interiors, calling you to venture out. Entryways flanked by trees and English gardens, invite you to walk back in. My hope is to evoke the memories of the many spaces we’ve visited, lived in and the role they’ve played upon our senses.” - Pierre Giroux

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.
