Ross Penhall’s Vancouver
Experience B.C. through the eyes of acclaimed artist Ross Penhall with this beautiful new book of paintings.
Ross Penhall’s landscapes capture Vancouver at its most peacefully surreal. Those days when the dropping sun pierces through the deep grey of the overhanging clouds to bring out the deepest possible saturation of colour, making you forget that just moments ago you’d given up hope of ever again seeing anything but dreary wet concrete. His paintings burst with colour, illuminating familiar corners of the city –from Shaughnessy to Stanley Park, across the water to the North Shore and beyond– removing all human traffic and chaos to reveal a side we rarely slow down to see.
Ross Penhall’s Vancouver from Appetite by Random House, collects these works along with stories of the artist’s personal history to create a portrait of the city worthy of a place on any Vancouverite’s bookshelf.
