Quick Hits – Pirrie’s Mountains

David Pirrie is an artist who reveres the mountains, dating back to childhood scrambles with his brother in British Columbia’s coastal range on Vancouver’s North Shore. Stone Canvases, his latest exhibition, is at Ian Tan Gallery through March 30.

Castle Mountain, Canadian Rockies  2022
Oil on panel  24″ x 30″

As for the dots . . . “My use of bright monochromatic colors and dot overlay draws aesthetic and conceptual comparisons to Pop Art, implicating these colossal stone figures in the pop culture lexicon.”
