As part of an iconic series inspired by summers at the lake, Pat Service re-imagines the classic form of a rowboat. The boat in golden orange is moored beside a dock that juts out into a jet-black lake. The perspective gives the viewer the impression that they are looking down from above. This painting is all about minimalist form and dynamic colour relationships.
“Colour, line, texture and composition are the players; the playground is the canvas.”
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.
