Cybele Ironside

Cybele is a Canadian painter living and working in Vancouver, BC.  She spent much of her youth on the Islands and Waterways of BC's coastline, and was greatly affected by the dramatic changes in light and the moods created by the climate. She works in Oil, a medium that helps create the atmospheric effects of Canada's West Coast.

"I try to distil both the inviting and haunting aspects of these landscapes through a densely layered technique developed over several years, in which abstraction allows feeling to override outward form. Ultimately, I want my paintings to have a calming, meditative effect on the audience."
