Verne  Busby

Verne Busby's current paintings analyze forms and spaces, not from a traditional or prescribed point of view, but from an intuative, visceral one. Internal and external landscapes playing off each other becoming transitory images. My intent is to express, in paint, the illuminating and profoundly moving chaotic forces that provide an unlimited visual pageant.

Verne Busby has lived and worked most of his life in Edmonton, Alberta. He received his BA and Secondary Education Teaching Certificate from the University of Manitoba. He went on to further his design experience with studies at Grant McEwan College Design Arts and the University of Alberta. In 1981, after several years of agency experience in Edmonton, Verne Busby joined Bella Totino in Totino Busby Design Inc., an independent design and illustration studio. Verne has taught part time at the University of Alberta Faculty of Art and Design, Visual Communications.

Verne Busby Statement

My current paintings analyze forms and spaces, not from a traditional or prescribed point of view, but from an intuative, visceral one. Internal and external landscapes playing off each other becoming transitory images. My intent is to express, in paint, the illuminating and profoundly moving chaotic forces that provide an unlimited visual pageant.
