Alfred Muma has been a painter and printmaker for 40 years. He works in water colour, acrylic, oil, mixed media, collage, woodcuts, lino blocks, stencil prints, and intaglio in the style of expressive realism. He works both in the studio and on location with subjects that include landscape, figures, seascapes, urban night scenes and music interpretation. Alfred’s work is in corporate, public and private collections in British Columbia, Ontario, Alberta, the United States, England, Scotland, Netherlands, Germany, Finland, Turkey, China and Australia. He has exhibited in 42 solo exhibitions and 82 juried and group shows from 1975 to 2014. Alfred is a painter, teacher, mentor, print maker and glass artist.
”Alfred Muma’s painted and print works celebrate and witness man’s presence in the Pacific West Coast landscape of British Columbia. He exploits direct means that are characteristic of the various painting and printmaking media to yield images of remarkable fluidity”. Robert Genn
32”x72” artist acrylic spray paints and markers on canvas
I have been working on a series for the past couple of years using artist quality acrylic spray paints, Montana Gold. Also there are Montana Gold acrylic markers.
Spirit of BC is the first canvas I have used the markers with the spray paints.
These large canvas paintings I have been working on are non-objective. But Spirit of BC is a deviation from that series in that it is a stylized landscape.
The various shapes in this current series is a marriage of a printmaking technique, stencil printmaking and mark making with tools other than brushes.
Spirit of BC’s story is that of rugged landscape and raw energy from the heights of mountain tops down to the ocean.
