A new body of work after a two year long wait….some very much Covid inspired.
Still-life and figurative paintings in oil and acrylic will be presented at the Kube Gallery by artist Susan J Falk.
The figurative paintings are reflective of the artists experience working with her masked model, Katherine Siemens, over the last two years. Using the same masked model but with a vintage costume twist in each 48” x 36” painting sends a strong message that all is not right in the world and we might want to proceed with caution.
The still-life floral paintings 24” x 24” are painted with impressionistic jewel tones, reflecting light in glass vases, sharing to the viewer that often we think of flowers as a kindness to each other in our daily lives.
“ ideas and inspiration can pop up at the least expected moments. Like a friend stopping in for a visit and you just have to paint her in that vintage yellow peasant blouse or a visit to the beautiful local flower shop, Niche Boutique in Fort Langley, and your stopped in your tracks as you walk in the door. The French inspired display of artfully arranged roses capture you to the point of, I have to paint this!!. “ Susan J Falk

“A lifelong artist and veteran teacher, Falk has been a pioneer in the Fraser Valley Arts community for decades. Her professional foray into the art world began in the film industry when Falk worked as a makeup artist. After cutting her teeth in the industry, Falk then served as the head of the program for twelve years at her alma mater, John Casablancas. After years of studying painting and eventually, selling her work, Falk transitioned into her career as a full-time painter and part-time instructor. She served on the board of directors for the Fort Gallery, for twelve years. Currently she serves on the Langley Centennial Museum Advisory Committee. Collaborating with poets and environmentalists, Falk was honoured with an Environmental Hero award from the Township of Langley. She was invited in 2015 to showcase her life size Bears and Salmon in a one woman show in Kyoto, Japan and to speak about environmental concerns. In 2019 / 2020, Falk was Artist in Residence at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts.”
