LIVE PAINTING every Saturday & Sunday from 2 to 5 pm. Artists of this week:
March 5, Saturday: Darlene Forst
Darlene Forst is a Canadian contemporary artist.
Her paintings use intense colours to explore the dynamism of asymmetry and invite you to experience a variety of emotions as you interplay with the art. Her goal is to draw you into an experience.
“Each painting is a dance of pigment on canvas: a spectacle, a performance.”
Darlene is originally from Saskatchewan, where she began drawing and painting in high school. She received her B. Sc. in Physics from the University of Saskatchewan. She now lives and maintains her practice in Vancouver, BC.
Her work can be found in corporate and private collections across Canada.
