Noon - Five with artist present

     

Over the past 35 years, Seka Owen, RCA, ASA, a Calgary-based painter affiliated at the beginning of her artistic career with Edmonton's School of Formalism has earned a reputation as one of Alberta's and Western Canada's most important, and prolific abstract painters.  Her works are composed of assemblages of bright colour, laid over subtly stained grounds. The unusual and often dramatic colour effects that she achieves imbue her works with an expressive quality that sets them apart from those of her contemporaries.  Owen's works have often been described as 'post-painterly abstraction', but whatever the term, there is a depth and emotion in her works that transcend whatever category is applied to them.
