BC artist Pat Service re-defines the classic Canadian landscape in minimalist form and brilliant colour in this painting called, ‘Touching.’
The simple, identifiable shapes of fields, trees, rolling hills alongside a road give way to a cloud filled horizon. The colour palette is a glorious melange of blues—turquoise and sky-blue, mauve, orange, and greens—forest and lime.
“Combining thin washes of pale colour punctuated with saturated colour and an active graphic element; I aim to achieve maximum expression with minimal means.” 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.
