Originally we were planning a show titled Perspectives to open in the gallery on April 2nd, but COVID19 has altered everyone's plans.  To honour their great artistic effort we decided to have this show anyway, because it would be such a shame to not share these beautiful new creations with collectors and art lovers simply because we were closed and encouraging everyone to remain at home.  Therefore this lovely virtual show for the artists to have a goal to work towards and you the collectors to enjoy browsing from the comfort of your home. We hope you enjoyed these new works of art. Please connect by email with any questions you may have about any of the pieces above.  We miss our browsers.  Feel free to make a special appointment to come in, or contact us just to say hello.

About The Artist

Johann Wessels was born in a small town in the middle of South Africa, to a ballet dancer mother and psychologist/photographer father. He spent two years in compulsory military service before doing a 4 year Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, finishing as the best student his graduation year. After working for several years in a variety of non-art related fields: fireman, paramedic, photographer, radio announcer and publicist, he realized his artistic calling and began a series of teaching jobs at university art schools at 6 different institutions, teaching history of art, drawing and printmaking. In 1999 he and his family left South Africa, did a spell in England and then arrived in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, where he worked for a time as digital cartoonist and illustrator, having his work published in books by Brian Jacques and Sean Cullen. The bright lights of TV and Film soon lured him to work in the small Saskatchewan film industry, getting him his first opportunity to work on the legendary “Corner Gas” for a few seasons. After that, "Tideland" with the director Terry Gilliam and a slew of other productions that saw him work as scenic artist, props builder and designer. In 2010, the writing was on the wall, the film industry had been dealt a fatal blow by the Saskatchewan government and he returned to his own creative work, being awarded an Arts Board grant which allowed him to field sufficient works for his first solo exhibition in Canada.

In 2011 he moved west to Penticton, BC where he continued to work in his studio, producing paintings, drawings and sculptures which featured most prominently in the Penticton Art Gallery and also in the Kelowna Art Gallery, with which he has had a particularly productive relationship. 2012 saw him producing a series of unusual public artwork sculptures, the series titled “Fossils from the future”, that were affixed to Kelowna downtown lamp poles, provocative works that appeared overnight; enigmatic “messages from the future”. In conjunction with the Kelowna Art Gallery, they produced a number of videos that fed into the conjecture around what the art meant. Between painting full time in his studio, Johann also does occasional work for the Okanagan film industry and large scale mural work for a variety of wineries.

About this series of Tondos

The tradition of painting on a disc or circular shape goes back to Renaissance and possibly before. Michelangelo painted in the Tondo format. Johann Wessels has photographed the wildlife visitors to his home neighbourhood over a span of several years, even developing a relationship with particularly, the ravens who feed off the mice and rats he traps.The tondo format seemed a logical choice for images acquired through the circular shape of the camera lens. It also adds a certain fresh dynamic to painted images, going away from the “open window” format of rectangular two dimensional artworks.  As animals live their lives under increasing pressure from human structures, the idea of introducing abstract elements, unrelated to the animals, added a level of meaning beyond mere life like rendering of the creatures.

About The Artist

I was born in Banff Alberta, grew up in Surrey B.C. and finished high school on Vancouver Island. I grew up with art not far away as my mother (Frances Harris) was making designs for the family business and landscape paintings for the fine art world. She continues to be an inspiration and her love of the B.C. landscape is, I hope, sometimes reflected in my work.

Pursuing art in post secondary education I attended the Kootenay School of Art and graduated with a BFA from Notre Dame University of Nelson in 1976.

I have explored various art avenues such as printmaking, photography, screen printing and drawing but became more focused on landscape painting with acrylics in the last ten years. I try to express a straight forward visual language in my paintings, shortcutting to an emotional response. This is an ongoing process building on the usual experimentation of substrates, colour, texture, composition and subject matter to strike that chord we can relate to. It’s never ending and ever changing.

Regarding subject matter, the B.C. landscape has so much to offer and I am continually amazed at the variety of material that is available from traveling through the province, by area and by season. I am always trying to view the scene as the pristine environment unaltered by the human machine that could be grinding away just outside the edges of the canvas.

I hope my work connects me to those viewers who likewise see the value of the wild space we all share.

About The Artist

I am in a continuous struggle with the inner me, the artist within that wants to create exciting pieces that scream with bold unexpected colors, lots of movement and overlapping brushstrokes, giving depth and excitement to the painting, but at the same time, I strive to create a piece where shapes can be easily identified, and representative of the world around us.  There is conflict here.  These impressionistic pieces lean towards reality with creative exaggerations; I paint every bit of color and energy I can onto the canvas. Pieces that come into being through pure inspiration, very little planning and driven from within with lots of energy, as if there is an urgency in to their coming into existence. I now accept that I have a natural duality, two opposing sides that are actually acting as complimentary forces that balance my creativity. That highly energized expressive side and the need to create a piece that is routed in the natural world.   

This may explain why I am naturally drawn to landscapes, drawing inspiration from Western Canada. After living in mostly cities for a great deal of my life, moving to British Columbia really opened my eyes to that which exists in nature. In exploring the influences in Western Canadian art, I have met and studied with many contemporary impressionists who have drawn their influences from The Group of Seven. I am drawn to Tom Thompson in particular. I see his work almost as an underpainting. A piece that has the nerve to be finished, where others would have continued painting on top toward a more representational piece. I employ some of this simplicity in my shapes and apply myself to painting the negative shapes, yet always reaching for greater complexity. There are never simple colors, or vast expanses of a solid surface.  

I see my work as a statement about our world today, a world that is more complex than the 1920’s world of the Group of Seven. In some way celebrating the natural landscape seems even more important now than it was then. My landscapes are filled with shapes that have overlapping colors (no subtle shading). I use bold, thick brushstrokes or pallet knife with only selected spaces for the eyes to rest. My work is a celebration of the natural world while at the same time reflecting our world today, where it is hard for any one thing to hold out attention for long. There is tension. Movement. Colors bumping against each other. Complexity.

We have a beautiful selection of limited edition prints on paper currently available that celebrate our exquisite North American wilderness and the animals that inhabit it.
