“I treat my canvas like a stage set, with simplified shapes and forms, deliberately placed to produce an artificial landscape.  I try to convey the feeling we have when watching the curtain rise in a darkened theatre auditorium, when, for that brief moment, we suspend disbelief and allow ourselves to be transported into an alternative reality.” Andy Woolridge

Troy Babineau


Okotoks, Alberta artist Troy Baineau a house painter turned oil painter on canvas.

"With over twenty years experience under my belt as a house painter and amateur photographer, a few years ago I unexpectedly watched a documentary on artist/photographer, Gerhard Richter – he was creating large, abstract paintings using long, flat squeegee tools, and applying oil paints onto his canvases.  They were awesome and I was immediately inspired.  I said to myself,  “I can’t draw a stick-man for the life of me, but I bet I can do that.”  And so, after many years of painting the walls of houses, I retired my roller, purchased a power saw, clamps, wood, rolls of canvas, and got to work on making my own frames."
