Edward Epp has enjoyed a painting career that spans over 30 years. For the last decade, he has captured the spirit of BC’s coasts. His lyrical paintings reflect the iconic landscapes and the people of Prince Rupert, Haida Gwaii and the South Islands. His art has been widely acclaimed and shown throughout BC and Canada.

Epp is known for his ‘plein air’ painting. He works on several paintings at a time outside in the elements, the effect of which can often be found in his work.

“For me, it goes beyond the physical resemblance of landscape; to the inner, fully felt poetic dimension. There is a critical urge to transcend the predictable. Beyond the mundane chores of commerce that I must endure, like everyone else, a requirement to give form to the intuitive and the ideal beckons. In my art, this is concretized in my search to push the medium beyond the known and sure, to move in a ‘fresh zone’ where I never traveled.”

Epp’s work is in public and private collections in Canada, the U.S., Britain, Africa, China and Hong Kong. He is represented by the Marion Scott Art Gallery and is included in Two Rivers Gallery Permanent Collection.

In 2004, Two Rivers Gallery produced Epp’s solo exhibition, Of Northern Extraction. Catalogue sold out.
