Artist Jo Galang explains that this warm, painterly image of poppies is in fact a reference to Remembrance Day. "The symbolism of the poppy started with a poem written by a World War I brigade surgeon," says Jo. "The battle wreaked havoc across northern France and Flanders. In 1915, red poppies began peeking through the land. John McCrae, a brigade surgeon, spotted a cluster of poppies. He wrote a poem, In Flanders Field, where he channeled the voice of the fallen soldiers." Jo reminds us of the subtle and important messages that exist throughout art.

Port Coquitlam, Canada

Artist Jo Galang expresses a quiet nostalgia in her airy interpretations of the landscapes and waterways of the Pacific Northwest. Her soft oil paintings capture the meditative sounds of rivers and waterfalls flowing past her easel. During the summer, she spends as much time as possible outside creating plein air sketches and studying the light on the landscape. As a young art student in the Philippines, Jo was privileged to study with the renowned painter Danilo Dalena, who she says encouraged her to be the artist she is today. "I believe my art looks simple enough that people have no idea how much time I have spent working on it," she says. When she is not painting, Jo and her husband enjoy taking road trips, playing cards and finding creative ways to spend time with their granddaughter.
