Event Details

Coralie Swaney believes that laughing matters. Her art reflects this premise both in her paintings and in her sculpted characters. She hones in on the quirks of humanity and serves them up with a twist of irony and a dash of humour. Borrowing from the masters and pop culture alike, Coralie applies a smile-inducing contemporary edge that makes the work relate-able to today’s audience. She works in acrylics and oils on canvas, and polymer clay and wood for her figurative sculptures. Stylistically, she thinks of her work as lifelike rather than realistic, and quite often she is inclined toward complete suspension of reality. Originally from New Zealand, Coralie now makes her home in Gibsons, BC where you will most often find her happily hunkered down in her Smiling Seagull Studio.

Artist Statement: I have always been impressed with the candor of cartoons and comics. They typically portray the world as it is, reflecting our human idiosyncrasies under the guise of humour or satire. At the same time I’ve always admired the quality and aesthetics of the old masters. The light and dark values, the lost and found edges, the mystery and stories that allow the viewer to get involved in the painting. And like today’s cartoons, they also portrayed the popular culture of the times. For me, it seemed a natural fit to meld the two and in doing so, possibly incite the viewer to ruminate on the absurdity of life as we know it.
