For years Tim Fraser has been exercising his painterly instincts along the Stanley Park seawall by composing endless combinations of shapes, line and colour – giving this beloved Vancouver landmark its due treatment. As a motif the seawall can be seen as a symbol of leisure, physically framing the landscape to suggest a possible ethnology of Vancouver’s active culture. Through his practice, Tim intersects painting and walking as meditative pastimes, his pictures delving into a formalist abstraction of feeling. Morphed into a serotonin-soaked haze of idyllic colour, Fraser’s imagination evokes the pleasure of navigating a sun-drenched, candy coloured world, where one need only consider the sun glancing off the path in luminous swoops and curves.
