Seeing More was originally intended as a celebration of a lengthy process of going back into old paintings with new eyes. However, our pandemic intervened, and so did Black Lives Matter ... and a deeper awareness of Indigenous lives as well. I’m grateful to be able to bring these paintings forward again - with a renewed commitment to Seeing More deeply, and Caring More widely.

This show is dedicated to my own dearly loved and held, multi-racial family.

3 Aug 2020 - 23 Aug 2020 The Vancouver Salon 2020 Diane Akey Category: Show/Exhibit Venue: Federation of Canadian Artists, Cartwright Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Two Old Dames Sunbathing circa 1954
Acrylics on Paper
36 by 36
@ 2020

Grandma use to call her Lady Friends, the Old Dames. They were strong women, who worked, raised children and grandchildren, travelled and enjoyed life!
Looking at this picture now, I wonder if they would have wanted their future told to them. Their lives led to mine. Family histories are so many stories! During Vancouver’s Spring of Covid19, I have been looking back at Family Pictures. I can with the turning of a page travel by decades. Lately I have been working on a series of paintings that portray the common lives of my family. The relationship between me the artist, you the viewer and the painting is a powerful synergy of thoughts and memories. I have purposely distorted the realism of old photos by using fragments of colours, marks and patterns to capture the ebbing and flow of Time as it changes.

Akey was born and raised in British Columbia. She has lived here on the West Coast of Canada her whole life. She is always inspired by the beauty around her. Throughout her life, Akey has always enjoyed making art, having had many roles in her life so far - student, teacher, mother, wife, farmer, and now painter. This year, Akey has been primarily working in acrylics both on paper and on canvas. Her intuitive use of colours, marks and textures have led to the inclusion of her own paintings on paper to being collaged into her paintings. During this last year, Akey has focused on the disruption or distortion of realism in portraits and landscapes to express the fractional passing of time.

Summer Dreams

An eternity of winter blues
Scars my soul

Mountain views that make me feel small
Every glimpse is a snapshot
Images that help me heal
