Marion Webber

Artist Statement I am a painter with a photographic eye. Photography "captures" the moment and removes elements to create an image. Painting is an additive process of building elements to communicate a message. This conceptual blend is the foundation of my art. I paint mostly landscapes  intimate spaces to grand vistas. I am interested in the fleeting quality of light and the abstract mix of shapes, lines and tones in landscapes. What attracts my attention is the glare off a leaf or the cascading shape of a shadow. I focus on simple shapes or objects. I want to take notice of the ordinary and make it extraordinary. Being in nature and the nurturance it provides is what I want to transmit in my art. Conceptually though, my work represents how I feel about life and my relationships. I hope others feel nurtured and peaceful viewing my art. Its a good antidote to the chaos from our city based lives.

Biography The earliest influence to be an artist was my mother, an accomplished oil painter. During the 1970s, I acquired a BFA from UVIC, with a focus on photography, drawing and painting. The early tonal influence of black and white photography is still evident in my work today, especially my contemporary works.

My painting mentors are quite broad, from 15th century European Renaissance to 21st century impressionist, abstract and conceptual artists. Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Monet and Renoir have influenced my use of tone and painterly technique. I also appreciate the work of BCs Gordon Smith and the New York artist, Wolf Kahn.

In 1979, I received a diploma in graphic design. The following 20-year period as a graphic designer further strengthened the conceptual and design aspects of my art. I revisited mixed media art in the late 1990s. Since 2005, I have focused more on painting, particularly oils.

The Canadian at the Wall Centre

A letter from Linda Burchell, from The Canadian at Wall Centre The letter describes how we provided them with historical photographs depicting Hornby Street and downtown Vancouver from the 1930's to 1950's. We researched and found a selection of historical photos for them to choose from for their building.

Dear Doris, I am a member of the strata council at the Canadian at Wall Centre. Recently our strata council decided that we wanted to upgrade the lobby of our building with photos to fill our blank walls -and given that you were initially involved in our building, the Canadian at Wall Centre I immediately thought of you.

I just wanted to tell you on behalf of strata council and the owners of the Canadian we are so pleased firstly with the choice of photos you suggested for us and second how you had them framed and placed them. Your work is incredible Doris and so much that we are now in the process of ordering more photos from you for our lobby and an owner in the building has asked me for your information so that he too can experience some of the same work in his home.

So, thank you so much for working with us so efficiently and providing us with incredible product - It will always be my absolute pleasure to refer you or provide you with a testimonial whenever you need it. All the best, Linda Burchell Strata President, The Canadian Realtor
