TED RINKEL: Rolling Along

Ted was born in Holland and emigrated postwar as a teenage boy to Canada in 1955. He has proudly called Calgary, Alberta home ever since.

Ted has always had an admiration for the arts and artists such as folk artist William Kurelek. He has been inspired by Quebec folk wood carvers to evolve his humorous drawings into the third dimension as wood folk art sculptures. Ted could always be found sketching comic figures of his family and friends and of Alberta`s cowboy and farming culture.

Since his retirement as a truck driver, his creative flare continues to grow and entertain those around him.

Looking Back - David Foxcroft - The Edge Gallery CANMORE

David Foxcroft graduated in 1977 from the Alberta College of Art in Fine Arts with a major in painting. Since that time he has been awarded numerous project grants from Canada Council and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. His work is published in: Young Contemporaries ’80, London Regional Art Gallery; A Measure of Success, the Alberta College of Art, 1985; and Artists of Alberta, the University of Alberta Press, 1980. In addition to his prolific artistic career, David owns The Edge Gallery and FrameCo Custom Picture Framing in Inglewood, Calgary. David maintains a studio at The Edge Gallery (CANMORE). His work is found in many private collections in Canada and abroad, as well as corporate and public collections such as Canada Council, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, University of Lethbridge, Alberta College of Art and Design and Bow Valley College.

Foxcroft’s fascination with interiors is exemplified by the strategic placement of colour, tonal variances and mixed media miscellany. References to his knowledge of art history, everyday occurrences and life in general are randomly yet precisely revealed. By happenstance, certain objects are favoured and re-emerge on different surfaces. Images are often repeated and reversed while constructions are mirrored in print form creating an additional artistic declaration.

In some works randomly found wood and metal objects, canvas scraps and construction remnants are retrieved and skillfully re-constructed into multi-layered abstractions. Other assemblages contain hundreds of precisely cut pieces of paper collaged into complex aesthetics. Obvious in all of Foxcroft’s work are a combination of strong compositional qualities and an acute grasp of spatial relationships. The corollary is a quantity of intricate images that provide a thoughtful and enduring visual experience.
