Pierre Coupey: Walking The Cat Back
Gallery Jones, Vancouver, BC - To Nov 21
Senior abstractionist Pierre Coupey is represented here by three bodies of work executed on paper and canvas: Stanza, Winter Poem and Algonquin. As curator and museum director Darrin Martens has written, Coupey’s artistic practice draws from multiple disciplines – he is a painter, a poet, a printmaker, an editor and an educator. His large, splashy and brushy paintings reveal, among other influences, the work of revered Abstract Expressionists Joan Mitchell and Jean-Paul Riopelle.
