Steven Armstrong's latest collection of acrylic paintings explores Vancouver Island's rugged landscapes and windy skies. It offers an opportunity to investigate a deeper relationship with the natural environment. Understanding a place enough to convey its essence visually is never immediate. In his endeavour to translate an experience of connection through paint on canvas, we enter a conversation on an emotional and enduring level. Lone objects represent more than simply trees, rocks, earth, and sky – they suggest places that carry meaning for us as individuals, and we relate to them over time.

Pieces such as "Shoreline XI," "Refuge Cove I," "Intertidal II," and "Mansons Lagoon XV" represent a deep dive into the artist's intimate relationship with the sea and shore. Cairns captures the essence of each location's unique story through her distinct, immersive style.
