David Stevens

 Dave Stevens is an accomplished and prolific artist, educator & activist. From Treewind, his studio in Delta, Dave produces drawings, paintings, illustrations & sculptures. From the vibrant and brilliant Arbutus series:

Arbutus Grove - David Stevens
 Arbutus Grove
Oil on canvas. 48″x24″
 The artist says:

It contains some of the elements of a Canadian landscape, the trees in the foreground and the sky, but it is simplified to allow for different responses. Removing the leaves, berries and bark of the trees leaves them open to other interpretations, such as arteries, veins and capillaries. So what’s outside in the landscape could also be what’s carried inside each of us as human beings.

We were lucky to have Dave as Artist in Residence in November.
