Installations

It is very gratifying to know that my work is not only collected, but is also experienced and enjoyed as part of displayed visual art installations. The very essence of an abstract landscape painting is that it provides viewers an opportunity to interpret and contribute their own experiences. It is my hope that viewers will experience a connection with my work that is reminiscent of past encounters in nature’s landscape: it is the memory or the feeling of an experience that I hope for viewers to reconnect with when they view my work.

As a Vancouver, B.C. based artist, the works displayed on this page include some of my locally installed paintings. However, my work is also collected and installed in Canada, United States and Australia. (If you are a collector of my work, and have an installation photo you would like to share, I would love to hear from you.)

Vancouver General Hospital Foundation

The Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) and UBC Hospital Foundation runs a program called Gifts of Art whereby artists and collectors donate visual art to the facilities. The goal of the program is to enhance the healing environment by beautifying and bringing inspiration to the patients, families and staff at the hospitals. The program originated in 2000, and the hospital now has a collection of over 1,200 pieces.

Having spent many hours visiting at the hospital in the fall of 2013, I became inspired to make a donation to Gifts of Art. I felt further inspired to involve the community, asking for their input and inspiration by way of photo submissions to help broaden the spirit of giving. (I am grateful for the many entries I received and will be awarding limited editions of the paintings to two MyInspirationGS contest winners.) The result was a 13’ triptych for the Jim Pattison Pavilion Dialysis area on the main floor. It is an amazing feeling to know that my work is part of the Gifts of Art program and that it can help contribute to the healing environment at VGH. I am grateful to Mr. Jim O’Hara, Vice President, Leadership Giving, VGH & UBC Foundation, for allowing me to become part of this wonderful program, and I encourage other artists and collectors to become involved.

“We are proud to have Gina Sarro’s artwork grace our walls at Workplace Resource. When Gina first approached us I was very impressed with her work. However, I wanted to get buy-in from a few of our internal team members, especially our interior designers, as artwork is very personal and it usually garners lots of feedback. Gina worked effectively with our team to understand our requirements and meet our limited budget. Gina even tailored her work to meet some of the colour trends in our showroom. We work closely with many corporate clients and the Architectural community, and while we are in the furniture business, we really want to ensure we have a customer experience that goes beyond furniture. We have referred many of our contacts to Gina, and they have all been impressed with her work and follow up.

Gina’s art not only makes our showroom look great to our many visitors, it has also stood the test of time without losing the initial feel that we had for it. On a personal note, when I look at some of Gina’s work, it lifts my spirit. For someone who was simply trying to put art on our walls, that is quite a statement. We have no hesitation in recommending Gina Sarro, and invite anyone that is interested to join us in our showroom for a walkthrough.”

VGH Neurology Department

It was a honor to be commissioned by the Neurology Department at The Gordon and Leslie Diamond Health Care Centre, which is part of Vancouver General Hospital (VGH), to produce a collection of paintings for the department on the 8th floor. The department wanted to offer a space that is calming and inviting to their patients, and it is a wonderful feeling to help contribute toward that goal.

Vancouver Private Residences

While art obviously helps to beautify one’s home and should fit with the design of the space, it can also elicit and elevate an emotional response. So I’m very grateful when I see my work displayed in private residences.

This collection also features three works that were commissioned to be painted in my style, but are more representational than I often paint.

“I commissioned Gina to do an important and quite personal piece for our family – a painting of our garden and family home. I didn’t just want another realist reproduction of the house. Those are quite common and I wanted something different. I wanted something deeper. Gina took considerable time to understand what I wanted. She made me feel comfortable that with her interpretive approach and enough artistic license, she could produce something that would resonate and make my family proud. Gina did deliver. She exceeded my expectations and my family was very pleased with the result. Gina is an accomplished landscape artist. She didn’t just paint our home. She painted a beautiful landscape of our property, where our home seamlessly forms part of the landscape. Gina provided us with a beautiful and very personal piece of art that our family will treasure for years.”
