The Shores We Call Home

from 22.00

“…oh, the water. Ye Gods, can the woman capture water. The glint and the glare of it; the lambent reflections and refractions of its flickering depths and shallows. Her brushes dance across the canvas, trailing water’s near-inexhaustible palette of colours, from flinty, unforgiving obsidian through blues and browns and ochres to the softest, yielding greens. It’s fitting that the medium she’s chosen is watercolour, for she colours the waters with astonishing clarity and a magical perfection that can make your heart do backflips. But she doesn’t think of it as “doing water.” She calls it “releasing the light.”

The mystical shores of coastal British Columbia hold boundless inspiration and an enigmatic spiritual presence for many who live along its various coves and inlets. For almost three decades, Carol Evans has been practicing and refining her art,creating stunning portrayals of the beautiful and rugged shores of Vancouver Island and the coastal mainland. Her intensity of colour and attention to the subtleties of light are trademarks of her increasingly popular watercolour paintings.

The Shores We Call Home contains over eighty of Evans’ works, collected here in gorgeous full-colour reproductions that faithfully represent the startlingly vivid visions of the original watercolours, capturing the unique character of BC’s exquisite shoreline landscape—a place like nowhere else on earth.
