The Collectors’ Gallery carries important original works of art including paintings, works on paper, and sculpture by Canadian masters from pre-Confederation to the present day. The Collectors’ Gallery also represents over 30 prominent contemporary Canadian artists.
Collectors’ Gallery represents Blake’s Spirit Collection. A body of partially abstracted figurative work developed from firm academicism, stretching toward a plasticity filled with mystery, one that suggests the limitless possibilities of the spirit while respecting the perfection of the human form.
The metamorphosis from the solid proportions and the expression of outer physical perfection to the ephemeral and the invisible leads the viewer toward introspection and the beauty of the human spirit. Exposing the importance of the inner self that is rarely revealed in figurative sculpture.
