Paige Quinn (b. 1998) is an artist and self taught oil painter who lives and works in Vancouver, BC on the unceded territory of the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. Quinn predominantly works through creating abstracted oil paintings which explore ideas of ecological spirituality, femininity, connection, and grief. Her paintings express personal thoughts and experiences about the natural world and connection. Paige is inspired by the the reverential naturalistic writing of Gary Snyder, Hsiung Hung and Han Shan (the Cold Mountain Hermit). Using this reverence and specificity towards her own experiece, she works in layers to obscure the canvas, allowing for moments where the viewer can peek through the branches into another world. By anthropomorphizing elements of nature in her lush paintings, she aims to highlight our relationships to the natural world and question our role within them.

Recent solo exhibitions include Portal Pop-Up Gallery, 4x4 Gallery, N/A Gallery, and 10 Carden Gallery. Notable group exhibitions include New and Emerging at The Seymour Art Gallery, Earth Slant at the Banff Centre’s Project Space Gallery, Curator’s Sauna at Canton-Sardine, Last Call at Boarding House Gallery, and
