Pierre Giroux paints ghostly interiors and exteriors filled with gesture and light. He draws inspiration from houses in his local area of Southern Ontario as well as the grander rooms in Europe, particularly France. From a dilapidated farmhouse in Ontario to an Italian villa in Tuscany, his abandoned spaces evoke memories and nostalgia.

Irving’s painting style is borne of a deep affection for the Canadian landscape. From her childhood in rural BC surrounded by pine trees and lakes to her current home in Vancouver where nature can be ignored by no one, the natural world has left an indelible mark on her sense of aesthetics and place. Irving turns her artistic expression toward the spacious forests of ancient trees, the looming mountains, the rolling ocean, the emerald green rivers and the moody weather around it all.
Please Join the artist for the reception on Saturday, March 14 from 1pm – 4pm. Exhibition continues through March 26, 2020.
