The Edge Gallery YYC (CALGARY) is pleased to present

David More is recognized as an accomplished Canadian painter. Since graduating from the Alberta College of Art in 1972, David went on to become an art history researcher, illustrator/writer, muralist, painter and teacher. But David’s passion as a landscape painter took precedent and he returned to his rural roots and with his wife Yvette established a studio and award winning garden in Benalto west of Red Deer in 1994. David’s work has been included in many public exhibitions across Canada and his paintings and drawings are in numerous corporate, public and private collections in Canada, the US and abroad.

“Lasting Impressions” is a collection of paintings that span the past 20 years where David has immersed himself in the landscape surrounding his home. As David considers his career as a painter, he says, “It turns out I like forests and the water that courses through them, gardens for their symbolism and their reach between nature and design, mountain forms for the power they force upon us, and the rural landscape and the skies that stretch above them.”

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.
