Wayne Boucher wants you to dive in deep to his latest exhibit, Blue Pools. Taking inspiration from past works and current events, the exhibition has been growing for the past 30 years. "The Blue Pools exhibition became an opportunity to revisit the colour blue and the challenge of how far I could extend the colour blue in the process of application, with the result of meaningful narratives layered beyond the surface in the work," says Boucher. The collection of paintings includes recent piece The Morning After: Japan rescue attempt number one from the golden platform with large Yellow Crane, a painting that tells a mythical narrative inspired by last spring's tragic earthquake in Japan. And you can write your own narrative for these paintings; Boucher and the gallery are donating 20 percent of sales from Blue Pools to the Canadian Red Cross to support relief efforts.

Sep 2-23, Gallery Page & Strange, 1869 Granville Street, 422-8995
