65 Years of Art: Works by Raymond Chow
Capulet Art Gallery
150-2288 No. 5 Road
Capulet Art is pleased to present 65 Years of Art, an exhibition of works by Raymond Chow. Its title refers to the culmination of 65 years in creating art. Sixty five years ago, the art of Chow was primarily known in the form of architectural buildings of Vancouver, Canada. Chow’s favourite medium, the fifty cent ball point pen in black ink, took him on a journey from when art dealers would knock on his parent’s home asking to buy a Raymond Chow drawing. At that time, Chow was only in his early teenage years. 65 Years of Art begins with Chow’s earlier architectural works from the mid 1950s that established him as a historian of Vancouver’s buildings. We move on from his drawings of buildings to a series of red and green acrylic based paintings of women in windows and houses from the 1960s. From there, we travel to a series of women in white gowns until we meet an era of abstractism. An era sparked by war in the Middle East which lead to a development of circuit computer parts meeting on canvas.
