Pnina Granirer is a senior BC artist living in Vancouver, whose work has lately received considerable international attention. This exhibition will flesh out in more depth the context of a series of mixed media paintings in our collection, representing an abandoned millstone quarry on Gabriola Island that was used as a source for grindstones for the pulp and paper industry in the 1930s. As part of a series from the 80s and 90s called the Carved Stones, it explored the almost surreal sandstone formations of the Gulf Islands as a kind of homage to that unique landscape. Thirty years on, the artist has started to revisit and initiate new work based on this series. This exhibition provides an exciting look at what has proven to be one of the artist's most significant and enduring bodies of work.
