Pat Service is taking you along for the ‘ride’ in this wildly colourful contemporary landscape. A sunny yellow highway stretches into the distance drawing the viewer past green fields and towards the deep blue mountains framed by a rosy pink sky. Service is known as one of Canada’s finest landscape painters and here she is recalling pictures from many road trips taken over the years. The imagery is now rendered in fresh, modern colours and bold, simple forms. You are ‘present.’
“The road trip again becomes an excuse for the fun of putting strange marks, shapes, textures and colours together, to make something no-one has seen before.” 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.
