Pat Service
Peonies, Etc. - contemporary, floral still life, acrylic and oil on canvas

1991

About the Item

Admired for their lush beauty, the peony, an ancient flower is celebrated in this charming floral portrait by Pat Service. The Canadian artist is known for her intuitive sense of colour, pattern and form displayed in many different genres. In the 1990s Service chose to explore the art of painting a more traditional piece—the floral still life. While the subject is classic, the colour palette is fresh and modern—a bouquet of different flowers—white peonies, purple hollyhocks, pink snapdragons, yellow mums and orange daisies arranged in a turquoise vase set against a patterned backdrop of turquoise and melon stripes. “In the mid to late 90’s it seemed to be a time to slow down. It is common for me to go crazy for a while putting my own spin on things and then for a change I will try to calm down. With these pictures…I just wanted to do a very good painting in a more traditional manner.” Pat Service Pat Service acquired a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of B.C. and later studied art at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland. Service’s work is held in private collections in North America, Britain, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, and Hong Kong. Pat Service is represented exclusively by the Oeno Gallery.

    Earth, air, water, and fire are the center subjects of my art. I live in New York City-it is close to the ocean, and I’ve developed a deep affinity for the sea, which has also evoked sentiments in me for what has across on the other side of the ocean. Majestic mountains in Europe and the U.S. those I’ve seen with spectacular ridgelines or forms are what I want to pay homage to. The sky’s ever-changing atmosphere, fire’s brilliance, and all the energies embodied in nature are the most things that I am in awe of. —- Leigh Wen
