An iconic figure in Vancouver’s painting community, Geoff Rees has been the recipient of major Canadian and International art awards. Having taught for 35 years at Emily Carr and retiring in 1992, he has created an everlasting impact on his students and fellow professors. All the while, he maintained his own studio practice as an important priority and necessity. Although Rees has been constantly producing exceptional new works in his studio, many of them have not been available for viewing since the closing of Buschlen Mowatt. This will be his first major solo exhibition in over 20 years, featuring a body of Rees’s most striking large scale abstract expressionist works. Elan Fine Art feels privileged to represent Geoff Rees and be able to showcase this extremely beautiful and powerful body of paintings.
