Nicholas Bott: New Works and Personal Favourites

March 17 - 31, 2018

Nicholas Bott is an internationally recognized artist based in Vancouver. This year is the 60th anniversary of his move to Canada from the Netherlands, and we are happy to announce our 7th solo show of his paintings. This exhibition features new work along with selections from Bott's personal collection, highlighting some of the styles he has explored over the years.

Originally from the Netherlands, Bott moved to Northern B.C. as a teenager. Influenced by both Van Gogh and the Group of Seven, he paints a wide range of subjects, favouring remote locations along the coast of B.C. and the sculptural mountains of the Rockies and the Arctic. He is a master at distilling a landscape; looking through nature, omitting unnecessary details and simplifying shapes to create a strong, sublime sense of place.

The exhibition opens Saturday, March 17 from 1-4pm and runs until March 31.
