Showing June 27 – August 1
Local artist DANIELLE FULAWKA has been painting and selling her acrylic pieces for nearly a decade. Most people can’t imagine the Canadian prairies looking anything like these ethereal floral paintings but all of these pieces are based off of real flower farms in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba.
As a cut flower grower herself she feels a sense comradely with growers in Canada as she seeks to immortalize all of their hard work, it is such an honour and privilege to share their beauty permanently with both flower and lovers outside of their reach.
In her pieces her primary goal is to push to boundaries of depths by using light and shadows to create a “bokeh” effect similar to that in photography. She is always learning and striving to become a better painter as she truly believes that “beauty will save the world.”
ROBYNN OLSON is a Saskatoon based artist and has been creating and selling works of art for seven years. Six of those years she focused on acrylic landscapes and in the last couple months she has switched over to oil landscapes. The vibrancy and slow drying time drew Robynn to explore in oil paints and once she started she could not turn back! Using large brush strokes and focusing on simple shapes, a recognizable scene comes to life. Using the full spectrum of the colour wheel is also important when she explores a landscape.
“Places I want to go and places I have been: that is what I want displayed in my home and I hope others want the same! I see beauty in the world and desire to paint it – not in the reality we see it, but in a more vibrant, hyperreal, joyful way.”
Robynn’s hope is recreate your memories and dreams using paint on canvas. @robynn.olson
