Pat Service_ A Road Trip
In Praise of Colour

In her first exhibition with South Main Gallery, Senior Canadian landscape painter Pat Service shows paintings infused with colour. Based on memories of a familiar route through the mountains and plains of Western Canada, she allows colour and line to take over from more traditional interpretations of the land. Service reduces detail in exchange for a more abstract approach, with the energetic brushstrokes and strong hues hinting at emotional feedback from her memories on the road.
