Glen Semple Delivers!

23 June, 2020 1 min read


Calgary based artist, Glen Semple delivered three new masterpieces to Edmonton today!  We were pleasantly surprised when we heard a knock on the door, and Glen had three stunning paintings ready to bring into our art gallery.  All three are studies of posey's cut from his garden last summer.  Glen composes his paintings by selecting an arrangement of flowers and photographing them under different outdoor lighting conditions.  Glen states in his artist CV:

"I like to paint objects that intrigue me. I am fascinated with the transparency of glass and the reflections and the distortions caused by water. The vibrant colours of flowers, the energy in nature, and the fun in toys and ordinary 'stuff' have found a place on my canvas. I am often drawn to complex details, and the fragments of larger images. As a result, while I continue to explore my common themes, I am also creating paintings derived from accentuating the morsels, pieces, and isolated parts, highlighting the little 'bits.'

The three new paintings are available for purchase and can be found on his artist page: Glen Semple

The new paintings titled Posey #1, Posey #2, and A Peaceful Posey also have a little easter egg / new feature we have rolled out on our website.  Each painting has a short video attached, that will give you a better look at Glen Semple's latest acrylic paintings!

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.
