This exhibition at the Seymour Art Exhibition will showcase two distinct bodies of work: one by painter m.a.tateishi, and the other by photographer John Steil. Although the artists are sharing the gallery, their work remains distinct from one another, but invites unexpected parallels.
Reception: Sunday, May 24, 2 – 4 pm
Artist talk with m.a.tateishi, Sunday, May 31, 2 pm
Artist talk with John Steil, Saturday, June 6, 2 pm
For a year and a half, artist John Steil was focused on numbers. It began on a 10-day road trip, where the quiet contemplation of the road led him to notice the numbers all around him. John Steil is a Vancouver photographer, community planner, painter, printmaker, and poet.
m.a.tateishi’s vibrant mixed media paintings incorporate acrylic, ink, marker, charcoal, pastel, tissue, and resin on wood panel, and each piece is built up with least 15 layers. Tateishi is a full-time artist who lives in Deep Cove and paints at her studio in East Vancouver.
