Peter Aspell: The Mad Alchemist

This exhibition featuring the work of B.C. painter Peter Aspell (1918-2004) comes from a private collection. Aspell, who experimented with abstraction, gained recognition for his work in post-war Vancouver. While many of Aspell’s contemporaries focused on landscape, his focus was on figuration. Aspell’s wide-ranging interests in symbolism, mythology, and portraiture informed much of the work that will be featured in this exhibition. This exhibition runs from January 23 to April 3 at the Richmond Art Gallery, with an opening reception taking place on January 22 from 7 to 9 p.m. A companion exhibition, Peter Aspell: Saints and Sinners, Mystics and Madness, will be on display at the West Vancouver Museum until March 26.
