BC artist Pat Service is well known for her beautiful landscapes. In the last few years she has interpreted those images in minimalist form rendered in vivid colours. Four Hills is a perfect example of her inspired colour palette—the simple outline of four hills in bright orange, yellow, green and red set against a royal blue sky.
“The simple layout and near-abstraction allows me to set up unusual colour juxtapositions. Using glazes and layering the paint over and over again, I seek an intense colour experience.” Pat Service
She acquired a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of B.C. and later studied art at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland. Service’s work is held in private collections in North America, Britain, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
