April Pyne

"Through colour and form my objective is to create works that evoke a sense of order, and with that order, peace."

Artist Statement

I am a visual artist living in Moncton, New Brunswick. My work explores minimalist objects, simplified shapes and fragmented forms that are reminiscent of interiors, exteriors and sky. I am fascinated with transition spaces; doorways, stairs, paths, and bridges. I paint in acrylic, pastels and oils. With these materials I create textures that recall stones, dust and sidewalks. Through colour and form my object is to create works that evoke a sense of order, and with that order, peace.
