Opening of Surreal Landscapes and Imaginary Worlds - Art by Alison Keenan
Lipont Gallery is excited to present Vancouver-based artist Alison Keenan’s stunning new paintings and collages, collectively named Surreal Landscapes and Imaginary Worlds.
As a professional artist with decades of practice in multi-disciplinary art, Alison Keenan not only has created paintings and murals to manifest her unique views of nature and the mesmerizing avian life of British Columbia; now she also has ventured into creating surrealist paintings and collages inspired by human life, culture, the pandemic and social changes. This new body of work represents her dedicated passion, endeavours, creativity, and skills in building an imaginary world that is filled with surprising details and metaphors underlined by the relationship between nature and human, the reduced social interactions during the pandemic and the evolving material culture.
Besides the Surrealist Landscapes, Avian Fables is an ongoing project that keeps the audiences amazed with the depictions of the magnificent eagles, falcons and other birds in British Columbia from an anthropomorphism approach, through painting and collages. According to Keenan, it is a “breathtakingly beautiful world.”
Lipont Gallery invites the audiences to a public opening of the exhibition on Thursday April 6th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
The artist will give a tour on Tuesday April 11 at 10am to the general public.
The exhibition will be on view at Lipont Gallery, 4211 No. 3 Road, Richmond B.C., from April 6th to 28th. The gallery opens Monday through Friday 10:00am to 5:00pm, with extended hours to 8:00pm on Tuesdays. The gallery closes on weekends and on April 7th Good Friday Holiday.
