Attila Richard Lukacs
Arbor I & II, 1999
etching, edition 34/40

For Attila Richard Lukacs’s 1999 exhibition Arbour Vitae Lukacs drew his inspiration from the photographs of the Russian Constructivist artist Alexander Rodchenko (1891-1956). The thirteen paintings and suite of prints included in the exhibition marked a stark change in both subject matter and style for Lukacs yet employed a medium, tar, which has been present throughout his work earlier and later works.

Dale Chihuly
Putti Riding Carp on dusty Blue Vessel, 1998
Hand-blown glass
39 x 18 x 18 inches

“I don’t really quite remember how the Putti idea came. I was up at Pilchuck, and I conspired to get Pino Signoretto and Lino Tagliapietra to work together on the same piece—something that simply would never happen in Murano. So I made a design that Lino would blow, and Pino would make the Putti, and we would put them together… all these different ways that the Putti could look, sit, and play. ” —Dale Chihuly

Graham Gilmore
, 1985
oil on canvas
64 x 89 inches

Graham Gilmore
Untitled (Prey Study), 1986
Graphite on paper
37 x 29 inches

Over 25 years ago, Diane Farris proposed to a friend that they acquire early work by emerging artists as a business investment and from this suggestion The Seymour Collection was formed. While the majority of the paintings, drawings and sculptures originally purchased by the collection have been sold, a few rare early works by artists such as Graham Gilmore and Angela Grossman remain. Gilmore’s Diana, which was included in the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Young Romantics exhibition, is one of the gems of the collection.

Chris Woods
Sable Black, 2006
Oil on canvas
90.5 x 60.5 inches

Throughout Chris Woods’ career he has explored North American consumer culture in his technically refined photo-realistic paintings, adding a healthy dose of humour. In Sable Black we see these elements perfected, the figures are painted so precisely that they can easily be mistaken for a photograph, and Woods has given the work the size and format of the very media he is critiquing.
