Steve R. Coffey and his daughter Grace delivered a new collection of oil paintings to the West End Gallery in Edmonton last week. We are happy to announce that Steve is now a member of our gallery in Edmonton and Victoria!

Steve R. Coffey has always thought of the prairies as a place loaded with visual intricacies. Throughout his travels, he has found that there is simply no light like that of the Canadian prairies. Further describing his relationship with the light of the Canadian prairies, Steve states:

“I feel that a human being is both dwarfed and defined within this light. I use human elements as both a romantic and metaphorical signal. Not for a sense of aloneness, but rather as an individual existing under the vast sky. My paintings are mental snapshots. I’ll see something that strikes me, file it away in my head and draw on it as I return to my studio. These files I call ‘Memory Polaroids.” - Steve R. Coffey

Steve R. Coffey has been an essential part of the Canadian art and music scene for many years. Coffey has exhibited throughout North America, Europe and Asia and is represented in Canada and the United States by many well-known art galleries. His artwork hangs in numerous private and public collections.

New Collection of Abstract Art by Vé Boisvert

August 21, 2020

An abstract expressionist painter, she favours both her intuition and a colour superposition technique to create paintings filled with positive energy. The music she selects during her creative process is nostalgic and melancholic. Low-frequency music allows her to transform profound emotions into something beautiful and inspiring.
