MONICA SHELTON

ARTIST STATEMENT

In the sanctuary of my studio I interpret what I value, feel and see. External experience combined with inner reflection, inspires my art. My concepts and symbols are playful and enigmatic, offering the viewer ongoing freedom, happiness and surprise.

My life has always been solely centered on the creation of art and the life of the artist. As a self taught artist I am always learning and I see the extraordinary in the small and the great, in nature and in life.

Born in Chile in 1949, I immigrated to Canada in 1967. Since 1975 I have been a full time contemporary artist exhibiting regularly in Toronto, Vancouver and Edmonton. After many years as an Ontario based artist, in 1987 I moved with my artist husband, son and daughter, to British Columbia. I work out my Gallery|Studio|Home in West Vancouver.

From extensive travels in my earlier years in the 'Studio of the World', throughout Asia, Europe, North America, South America, North Africa and the Middle East, I became aware of the deep and powerful impact of the language of art. Some ideas take years to show their essence in paint. Journeys in nature, particularly in western North America, continue to touch and expand my expression, creative process and courage to create.

Bringing art and people together is essential in the feeling and knowing of human wholeness. My paintings are represented in private and corporate collections in Canada and around the world.

 

Monica Sketch Travel

'When I paint, I want to be alone with the canvas. Only in solitude do I find the strength to get out of my own way and paint unbridled.

The act of painting gives me the opportunity to explore a less tangible reality. My objective is to paint feelings and ideas that are often elusive in todays world.

I paint from inspiration, using my imagination, dreams, sorrows and joys. I work with a format that is contemporary, gestural and personal. My aim is to help people discover their own story /meaning in the painting and travel to wherever it may lead.

My imagery is grounded in the natural world and aims to expand feelings and thoughts beyond the finite, thereby experiencing new insights into the nature of reality.'

BARRY SHELTON

My paintings continue as poetic maps and signposts of the human journey. Beginning with an energetic and spontaneous textural ground, energy lines or marks appear and fade, enliven and delineate. Symbols, metaphor, abstracted realism follow embodying, balancing and celebrating the pre-cerebral and the intellectual in a very material manner. Veins of subject matter in the natural world are mined and a series of work in acrylic and mixed media on canvas or panel is explored.

Each Individual Tree exhibits a particular quality, presence, and energy. Every Open Vessel portrays an essence and potential. Sacred Geometry reveals an elemental mystery and more. Light on Water affirms even as it embraces the ephemeral. The shape, colour and vibration of light intrigues me.

Born in Toronto, 1949, full time visual artist since 1979, my artistic foundation began in Ontario and continues in British Columbia since 1987. World travels initiate and nourish my life of art. The ancient and the contemporary both speak to me. Continuing journeys in the wide world of nature and the gardens, ocean and mountains surrounding my West Vancouver studio, infuse my work.

Constantly I sense and see a silent language before thought, a mystical unifying inner reality of simplicity and oneness, light and dark, beauty.

Shelton Art|Studios Gallery and the home that I share with my artist wife, Monica Shelton, welcomes lovers of art.
