About the Artist:

Maria first arrived in Vancouver in 1975 on holiday and immediately fell in love with the city’s natural beauty. Eventually, she made Vancouver her home. With its urban vibe, easy metro system and waterfront views, Maria says the city reminds her of Lisbon, where she was born. 

Maria creates her artwork using canvas, acrylics, oil, driftwood and other textured materials. When it comes to developing her artistic style, she says imagination plays the biggest role. “I love to lay on the beach and look at the clouds. I would have all these images in my mind and I would just paint them! I create from things I see around me.”  

The upcoming exhibition, titled 38.7 to 49th Parallel, is aptly named. “I thought a lot about it,” she says, “but in the end it was simple. My artistic journey began in Lisbon and ends in Vancouver, at the 49th parallel.”

For Maria, creating a piece of art can take anywhere from a few hours to a few months. “If a piece I’m working on doesn’t reflect the image or idea I had in my mind, I end up going back to it,” Maria says, “because of this, sometimes I can finish a piece in one sitting and other times it takes much longer.”

When asked what styles of art she is eager to explore in the future, Maria says photography is at the top of her list. “I’ve tried everything from ceramics to sculpture, but I would love to explore reflection photography in the future.”

“Draw whatever you think of and take notes. It took me years of school and learning before I was confident enough to start. Take your time and don’t pressure yourself too much!”

She also has sound advice for aspiring artists who struggle to find inspiration and develop their personal style. “Draw whatever you think of and take notes. It took me years of school and learning before I was confident enough to start. Take your time and don’t pressure yourself too much!”

Maria hopes her exhibit provides an escape from the business of day-to-day life. “I want viewers to enjoy my work. I hope it helps them relax, clears their stress and gives them a whiff of happiness and wonder.”

"Disrupted | Landscapes in Transition", Solo Exhibition by Gina Sarro

to Oct 6

"Disrupted | Landscapes in Transition", Solo Exhibition by Gina Sarro

Please join us for the release of Gina Sarro’s new collection of abstract landscape works.

Opening Reception: October 3 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Exhibition open to the public October 4 - 6, 11 am - 9 pm.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Painting the landscape allows me to retrieve memories from time spent in the natural environment, and then reinterpret and restructure these inspirations. My paintings portray nonexistent spaces; they represent a collection of influences and experiences. While painting I am looking at my own internal landscape, sourcing its connection to our shared human spirit. I seek the same outside myself as within, layering attention in pass after pass over each subject. This layering depicts and then reduces, simplifying and even erasing elements towards their essence. There is a willingness to obscure the original visual inspiration, though ultimately arriving at a balance between my outer and inner environment. I hope my paintings give us pause. A moment with both the world and our inner selves; to visit an artist’s journey of refined seeing into both.
