Artist focus: Mat Holmstrom

Beauty of the Pacific Northwest inspired Vancouver artist

In Pacific Splendor — Mat Holmstrom’s first solo show at Place des Arts in Coquitlam — the Vancouver artist was inspired by “natural environments and landscapes found within the Pacific Northwest” and it “presents notions of balance, harmony, transition, beauty and power,” he wrote to The Tri-City News.

There are 45 pieces in his display that opened Oct. 11 in the Maillardville venue’s Atrium Gallery, showing bold images in acrylic painting (on panel and canvas) as well as with ceramics and sculptures; all were produced within the past year at his studio in the Artist Resource Centre in Vancouver.

Holmstrom is no stranger to the Tri-Cities, having previously shown his work at Leigh Square in Port Coquitlam and at the Port Moody Arts Centre.
