Thomas Arden, Flower Princess

Patron Art House is pleased to present a solo exhibition of paintings by Thomas Arden through our partner exhibition program at Fine Art Framing & Services. The exhibition features a second installation of a series of gestural paintings made using live pigments from flowers, previously exhibited by Athena Atelier. With sensitivities to light and air the organic matter “painted” onto the canvas transforms over time, revealing nuances on life and decay.

The works on view are characterized by the flora that has been collected by Arden at the periphery of urban Vancouver and on Vancouver Island, and have been brushed directly onto the canvas. The vibrant pigments and textures bring the west coast landscape into focus.

Thomas Arden lives and works in Vancouver, BC. He produces work that merges the photographic, and painterly process with found objects.
