Simpson’s look at Vancouver Island

Vancouver Island’s breathtaking scenery and tranquility have played muse to many artists hailing from the area.

From its temperate rain forests and towering mountains to its endless shorelines and flowing rivers, Vancouver Island’s breathtaking scenery and tranquility have played muse to many artists hailing from the area.

Christine Simpson is one those fortunate enough to have been raised in such an exquisite part of our province and we are lucky enough to be able to share her interpretation of its beauty.

 

The depth of inspiration she has attributed from nature shines through in her work.  This self taught artist is no stranger to incorporating various materials into her work, such as, tree resin, bone and other unusual elements.

Using organic shapes and vivid colours adds to the appeal of her work and distinguishes her pieces from other artists while making them interesting to look at by both accomplished artists and novices.

 

Her exhibit at The Arts Station will take the viewer on a journey of work created from the artist’s reactions to life and nature, a visual feast of mixed media, landscapes, body prints and a few surprises.

Chistine Simpon’s exhibition, To Visually Touch, opens on Thursday, January 28 at 7 p.m. and continues until Tuesday, February 28.
