New paintings from Annabelle Marquis have arrived at the West End Gallery in Edmonton!
Annabelle's artistic approach is deeply tied to colour and composition and the unique way she mixes collage with paint. Each painting is fresh and spontaneous, full of ‘joie de vivre.’ Using mixed media collage with gold leaf, she is equally happy painting purely abstract or figurative work. Striking colours and strong design are at the heart of her pieces and further draw each viewer into her world.
She creates visual scavenger hunts that link the conscious to the unconscious. Using fragments of a magazine, flocked wallpaper, and fabric, she spreads her torn handiwork upon the canvas and, little by little, forms come into being.
“I enjoy the sensation of dried glue and pigment on my hands… I do not start off with a preconceived idea; the paper guides me.” -Annabelle Marquis

Coffey's latest oeuvre is a vibrant continuation of his exploration of Canada's diverse landscapes. Works such as Breeze, Harvest Dance,andCat Tails (Tales), delve into the artist's intimate relationship with the plains and skies, narrating the untold stories of the land. His immersive style captures more than the essence of each scene; it brings to life the unique story embedded in every brushstroke.
Cairns' new series is a masterful continuation of her exploration into the heart of Canada's coastal landscapes. 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.
