“It is, perhaps, this inalienable tie to nature that […] prompts artists to continue to represent the landscape and the viewers to seek out landscape art. And the more nature seems lost, the more sought after it becomes.“

Wanda Koop has been reinventing and redefining landscape painting for more than 40 years. Featured in over 50 solo exhibitions, she is a preeminent figure in contemporary Canadian art. Also renowned for her performance and video art, Wanda Koop is an inventive and accomplished multidisciplinary artist.

In Landscape with Red Bar (2008) and View from Here (2009) (lot 31), the striking contrast between the lightly brushed background and the vivid stripes of colour creates an immersive experience for the viewer. Her artwork questions the relationship between the sacredness of nature and the modern technological world.

Wanda Koop was born in Vancouver and currently lives and works in Winnipeg. Her artwork is collected internationally by major public and private institutions such as the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Reykjavik Museum, the Shanghai Museum of Modern Art and the Caldic Collection.  Wanda Koop was awarded the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts, 2016.
