The George Mackie Library is pleased to showcase the art of Jarnail Singh, an artist recognized in 2008 by the City of Surrey as one of their Civic Treasures.
Enjoy viewing a selection of his paintings of people and landscapes from now until April 30.
“Painting for me is a process of infinite happiness and joy. It is impossible to describe this process,” said Singh. “There is a mixture of feelings, imagination, craft, and many more elements that cannot be defined or explained. Painting for me is meditation. Painting for me is prayer.
“I paint whatever inspires or touches me. It can be a tiny flower, an awe-inspiring mountain or a stream. It can be a face in a crowd that impresses me with its beauty and innocence, or it can be a story of ancient times; they are all part of my paintings. People often ask me what I paint, and I reply, I paint everything, people, portraits, landscapes, anything that touches me, inspires me. Painting is my interpretation of these.”
