Steven Armstrong - Points of Views: A Selection of Perspectives on Landscapes
Steven Armstrong's latest collections of paintings on display at the West End Gallery in Victoria, B.C. explore the rugged landscapes and windy skies of Vancouver Island and offer an opportunity to investigate a deeper relationship with the natural environment. Lone objects come to represent more than merely trees, rocks, earth, and sky – they suggest places that carry meaning for us as individuals, and we relate to them over time.
"How do you communicate the experience of exploring a coastal rain forest, hiking to an alpine lake, or watching the wild Pacific waves roll in? I grew up fascinated by how we conceptualize and express our relationship with the natural environment and with one another—that sense of connection. I approach painting as a form of communicating an ever-changing relationship with place. It's a dialogue, really – a conversation into which the viewer is invited."
We invite you to experience this event in person at the West End Gallery in Victoria, B.C., which opens Saturday, November 7, 2020. This exceptional collection will be together for two weeks, officially closing on Thursday, November 19. A virtual walkthrough will be posted for those who cannot attend or for individuals living in faraway places. Our staff thank you for wearing your mask while visiting our gallery.

Paul Jorgensen attended the Vancouver School of Art, now Emily Carr School of Art and Design. His education was heavily influenced by the "hard edge" paintings (flat coloured panels in structured grids) in vogue. Still, the Group of Seven, The Impressionists and magazine illustrators provided him with inspiration, as they still do. These artists, in most cases, hint at a story in a specific landscape that intrigues him. He tries to incorporate an open gate, a glimpse of a car, or a path as it hints at a person in the scene that the viewer just missed. Paul Jorgensen’s latest collection of playful landscapes features the bright colours, intricate patterns and joyful vignettes he is known for. His unique approach to painting is enhanced by skewed perspectives and prolific use of intertwined shapes and forms revealed as lush gardens, secret paths and distant locations. Paul's narrative style further encourages the viewer to immerse themselves in his paintings and travel from the comfort of home.
