Peter Aspell: Homage
Pendulum Gallery, Vancouver, BC - Apr 25 – May 16
One of Vancouver’s leading post-war painters, Peter Aspell (1918-2004) has been described as a “primitive expressionist,” his figurative art evincing a range of interests and influences, from ancient Egyptian art to contemporary robotics. His vividly hued and expressively painted works are often characterized by surreal juxtapositions of symbols and motifs – human, animal and mechanistic. Organized by Gallery Jones, the show also includes paintings by Enn Erisalu, Otto Rogers and Gary Pearson.
