The Great Brandy Saturley Checks In

Award-winning Victoria, BC artist Brandy Saturley sends along her hockey stick painting for us to enjoy. And below the painting, Brandy tells us, in her own words, her thoughts behind the piece.

And here’s Brandy Saturley –

“Earlier this year I completed two paintings paying homage to the history of the hockey stick. These two paintings reference a handful of the biggest stars to wear the number nine, apparently the most star-worn number in the NHL, as well as a current star wearing eighty-seven.

“I wanted to show the evolution of the ice hockey stick from the sticks created by the Mi’kmaq of Nova Scotia to current day. The Mi’kmaq First Nations are credited with the earliest forms of ice hockey play in Canada, as well as the creation of the first hockey sticks carved from Ironwood. Mi’kmaq First Nations were
Indigenous to Canada’s Maritime Provinces and the Gaspé Peninsula of Quebec.

“The sticks were first manufactured in Canada by Starr Manufacturing, under the brand name, Mic-Mac and were sold Internationally. Perhaps someday I will own one of these vintage sticks myself, until then they exist on canvas in my art studio.

“These pieces are painted on Renfrew hockey tape and canvas. I have been incorporating hockey tape more into my paintings as of late, I love the softening I get of the paint as it is absorbed into the primed tape. It also offers and ‘aging’ effect which gives the painting more character and texture. I am looking forward to experimenting with painting on hockey tape more as the new season is about to take the ice.

“Thank you Dennis-Kane.com for inquiring about these pieces and for sharing with your readers. I am currently preparing for a retrospective showing of my #ICONICCANUCK collection of paintings, some of which have been featured on this blog. An invite only grand opening will take place later this Autumn. More here – The Showroom Victoria.”

Brandy’s People Project

Acclaimed Victoria-based artist Brandy Saturley, whose work you’ve seen here and which you can see again right here, has come up with a cool project idea.

She calls it the People of Canada Project and is asking folks to send her photos like the one below, and at the end of 2014, twenty will be selected from the ones submitted and used as portrait references.

So if you and a friend or partner want to become immortalized by a great Canadian artist and have your portrait hung in an art gallery, just read her link below to see how to do it, send her your photo, and become famous!

The plan is to exhibit all of the photos along with the painted portraits in a Canadian venue/gallery as part of Canada150 celebrations.

The link with all the details is here – People of Canada project.

Brandy suggests you try to do something that sort of mirrors the famous Grant Wood painting, as this couple below did.

Like Brandy Saturley from a few pages back, Jeff Molloy paints Canadiana, and I think from both we see exquisite beauty, with each having their own distinctly unique styles. Below are examples from Jeff, and you can see much more on his website Jeff Molloy. For Brandy, just scroll back a few days.
