Main Guard of Barbados Art Show: Bajan-Cajun transplant wows locals and visitors with original material, Pt 2/5

Virginia Trieloff is a tall striking personality, for me, rather reminiscent of a blonde Anjelica Huston – when I had the pleasure of meeting her for the first time this week, I said to her how the barracudas she proudly displayed seemed to be alive although dead and appear to almost leap off of the canvas!

This delighted her, she said how she wanted the paintings to be that electric in capturing people’s imagination… The phrase itself for one of her works – Still Life with Barracuda – reminds me of one of my most favorite authors, Tom Robbins and his Still Life with Woodpecker

The bottom line is that (a) people are never perfect, but love can be, (b) that is the one and only way that the mediocre and vile can be transformed, and (c) doing that makes it that. We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.

I made a cool digression but let’s get back to the review now, LOL! Virginia believes you can find true dynamics of Art when disciplining yourself to delivering a perfect still-life, this can not only be found at her page on Corrie Scott‘s website, but you get a sample of Virginia‘s work and insight of her life at her own personal website as well!

A member of The Arts & Letters Club of Toronto, Virginia divides her time between her studios in Renews, Newfoundland and in Barbados. Virginia accepts private commissions, sells and shows her work in juried exhibitions around Toronto, St. John’s and Barbados.

So don’t waste any time before those originals disappear, head on over to the Garrison near the Defence force and visit the Main Guard and make room at home for a Virginia Trieloff original! When you buy a painting you also assist the B’dos Poppy League in helping retired soldiers too, ten per cent of all sales will be donated!

  1. We all love Ms Trieloff!

  2. Virginia’s painting strikes a chord for me that lives deeply within.
    Not only beautiful and erudite, she creates thought provoking, glorious art.

  3. The growing demand for Virginia’s paintings both in Canada and the Caribbean is indicative of the increasing international recognition of her outstanding talent.

  4. I really like Virginia’s cane dog series.If any one has spent a weekend down Bathsheba/Cattlewash and sat on the gallery of a bay house in the late afternoon you will know she has absolutely captured the light and feel of the place. A stray dog entering your sights completes the accuracy of the mood.

  5. I love Virginia’s painting.
    her art student,
