  • 1909-2010

Besides numerous exhibitions around the country, her artwork is held in public places such as the Honolulu Museum of Art, the National Print Collection at the Library of Congress, and the University of Hawaiʻi.
With an extraordinary mastery of figurative drawing, Foley was able to fuse the sensuous with the hypnotic in her unique views of the human essence. Her famous Hawaiian Woman in White Holoku (1937, Honolulu Academy of Arts) epitomizes the elements of her drawn and painted works, which continue to enchant and inspire viewers to this day. She died in 2010.

Kieff, Grediaga Antonio (1936- )

  • Person
  • 1936-

Kieff Antonio Grediaga was born in 1936 in Madrid, Spain. He began working as an apprentice in his father's cabinet making atelier at a young age, later going on to study technical drawing, industrial design and architecture. Kieff's works have been exhibited in galleries, fairs and institutions in Canada, the USA, Japan, Hong Kong, and Europe. Largely inspired by music, the stage and literature, Kieff's work has always been fueled by the quest to find himself through a study of space and time and by a relentless desire to experience, manifest and share what can be considered the state of freedom. Whether sculptural or graphic, his works are an intriguing embodiment of the lyrical relationship between mass, volumes, rhythm, movement and a profound intimate reflection on his own human condition. Kieff lives and work in Montreal where he continues to develop new works.

Forrestall, Tom (1936- )

  • 2001_002
  • Person
  • 1936-

Thomas deVany Forrestall is a Canadian painter born in Middleton, Nova Scotia in 1936. After graduating in 1958 from Mount Allison University (where he studied with Alex Colville), Tom Forrestall was assistant curator at Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton in 1959. The following year he became a full time painter. His realistic works, often done in egg tempera, convey his ideas of the East Coast landscape and its dwellings. From the early 1960s, Forrestall experimented with panel shaped from triangle to T-forms; each chose to fit his painterly ideas. He also painted a large number of out-of-doors watercolours, which express much the same ideas as his egg tempera work, but in a more relaxed, and joyous mood. His watercolours, in contrast to his more metaphysical and individual canvases, form one long series and deal with sense of place. He became an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1986.
