THE FIGURE IN THE LANDSCAPE | June 17 – July 15, 2017

Liz Toohey-Wiese, Sara Caracristi, Taralee Guild, Jessica Korderas, Jessie McNeil. “The Figure in the Landscape” takes a look at the narrative in landscape painting and the contemporary relationships between identity and space. The narrative has long been an integral part of landscape painting whether portrayed in direct representation, in historical references or in memory of real and imaginary places. We seem to have a keen desire to connect with nature and the landscape [...]


A CABINET OF CURIOSITIES | May 12-June 10, 2017

ELISSA CRISTALL GALLERY is delighted to present “A Cabinet of Curiosities” a group exhibition curated by Darius Stein with artists: Luke Armitstead, Sarah Davidson, Paul Halley and Juliana Silva. “A Cabinet of Curiosities” takes a look at two and three dimensional artworks that occupy a space located between fact and fiction. Historically, cabinets of curiosities were comprised of an encyclopedic array of objects whose categorical boundaries were still to be defined. While generally [...]


SHAPE FORM COLOUR LINE | April 1 – May 6, 2017

Elissa Cristall Gallery is pleased to present SHAPE FORM COLOUR LINE: the language of abstraction. The exhibition features Anda Kubis, Amanda Reeves, M.E. Sparks, Randall Steeves. The paintings in this group exhibition document the diverse approach to abstract painting. Formally concerned with shape, form, colour, and line, the artists execute their individual visions of abstraction on canvas, on paper and on panel. The works vary in scale, opacity, colour and spatiality; each distinctly [...]


JESSICA KORDERAS | February 9 – March 11, 2017

Jessica Korderas creates three dimensional dioramas that she meticulously constructs through painting and drawing, which are then cast, layer upon layer, into a block of resin. The process is slow, time consuming, and unforgiving. Each work is carefully planned and considered. Korderas combines drawing with acrylic resin to create a relief effect. She constructs the backgrounds on illustration board. She creates the figures and paints each one on mylar. The figures and backgrounds [...]


JESSIE MCNEIL | Travellers | December 1 – 23, 2016

We each consume a place differently. Whether simply resting in public spaces or attractions, filling tour bus seats or obsessively taking photos, we capture, collect and consume the environments we visit. The collages of Travellers expose the moments when the personal and public, the fragmented and integrated merge while offering a painterly representation of the light and texture found in the environments we travel to. With this example of her figurative collage [...]


CHRISTOPHER FRIESEN | Silvery Tones | November 5–26, 2016

“Silvery Tones”, is a contemporary look at the pre-impressionist painter Camille Corot. The exhibition is accompanied by an essay Souvenir of Corot: Views, Veils, and Silvery Tones written by Dr. Geoffrey Carr. Dr. Carr teaches art, architecture, and film at University of the Fraser Valley, University of British Columbia, and Emily Carr University, Friesen became interested in Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot while visiting the Frick collection in New York for the first time. The piece [...]


JEROEN WITVLIET | Sighting Part Two | October 8–29, 2016

The Sighting paintings are mostly without human presence. An empty stadium bleacher, a forest without seemingly any human activity are presented on larger format canvasses and speak of what has been, touching on memory of events and history. Informed by a film never made and therefore only existing as a phantom, the imagery is strangely silent, almost like waiting for the next episode to take place. The painted surfaces shift constantly [...]
