February 20, 2020
Canada House Gallery is pleased to share a collection of vintage artworks by Robert Genn, Walter J Phillips, Allen Sapp, and Jimmy Wright.
Robert Genn, SFCA (1936 - 2014):
"The biggest thing is the appreciation of the magnificent universe we have around us. Being a painter, particularly, is beyond belief as a way of honouring that. Painting – particularly painting on location – is almost like a prayer. It's defined who I am and what I am."
Walter J Phillips (1884 - 1963):
Walter J. Phillips was internationally acclaimed during his lifetime for his proficiency in the medium of the colour woodcut derived from the Japanese method. Through the skilful superimposition of many layers of transparent water-based inks, he created images of great beauty, subtlety, and depth. Unquestionably, Phillips produced some of the most important prints and watercolours in Canada during this period. --Glenbow Museum
Allen Sapp, RCA, OC (1928 - 2015):
"I can't write a story or tell one in the white man's language so I tell what I want to say with my paintings. I put it down so it doesn't get lost and people will be able to see and remember."
Jimmy Wright (1937 - 2008):
"My style is loose, sort of half way between Robert Bateman and a caveman."
