We are pleased and privileged to present a selection of etchings from David Blackwood, one of Canada's most accomplished and respected artists.

Olexander Wlasenko; "Drive"
From Olexander's latest body of work and newly framed, the inspiration for this work comes from the film "Les Tricheurs". "Les Tricheurs" is a comedy of manners about a group of young Parisians enjoying the bohemian lifestyle in the late 1950's. They live between the left bank of Saint-Germain-des-Pres and right bank suburbs of Paris. Pascale Petit plays Mic (short for Michele). She's behind the wheel--tonight. Charcoal on paper. Framed, 25 1/2" h., 79" l. SOLD
Olexander Wlasenko; "The Photograph"
In this charcoal on paper, Olexander depicts a still from a Soviet film of the early sixties, roughly translated "We'll Make it Through until Monday". In this scene, a teacher having a particulary difficult day finds an old photograph of herself and ponders both her youth and what life might have been like had she chosen a different path. We as viewers are seeing this scene from the point of view of the teacher and become part of the moment. 79" l., 42 1/2"w. framed. Canadian; 2011 SOLD
Olexander Wlasenko; "The Pledge"
