Contemporary symbolic realism paintings created by celebrated Canadian visual artist Brandy Saturley, an award-winning painter and travelling photographer living and working in Victoria BC, on beautiful Vancouver Island. Saturley is a painter who is concerned with symbolism, and the reception of realistically painted icons, set against abstract backgrounds.
“My work is ‘thematic’ and for the past decade I have been fixated on Canada. When I look back at my career as a visual artist I am aware that my time working in the film industry, and my fascination with cinema and storytelling, has influenced my way of working in and out of the studio. I don’t paint landscapes, portraits or still-life, rather I am telling stories using iconic figures, landscapes, and compositions, and I have many stories to tell. I am an explorer, and I am currently exploring the collective consciousness” ~ Brandy Saturley, 2017
