ANGIE REES is an artist living and working in Calgary, Alberta. She has painted throughout her life and has also trained formally, graduating with a BFA from the University of Alberta in 1990.

The words “whimsical,” “playful” and “eccentric” come to mind in describing her painting style. These imaginative works are extremely well-crafted with rich surface textures and a vibrant, arresting palette. The wit and humour of her clever titles add another dimension to these “visual puns.”

ARTIST STATEMENT

These paintings are based on my daydreams – weird and wonderful imaginings that occur with startling frequency inside my head. I’ve learned how to tap into this place by watching the way children – my own son in particular – so easily suspend their disbelief and go for an adventure.

I feed my imagination a very rich and steady diet of children’s storybooks and theatre and try to indulge its every whim.

I hope my work reaches out and tickles the viewer – provoking his or her inner child.

My rules for making art are simple: “What if . . . ” and “Why not?”

It is so liberating to paint in a world where anything goes and imagination abounds.
