Joe Plaskett
b. 1918, New Westminister, British Columbia

He is a painter known for his colourful palette, light-drenched still-lifes, and portraits. He exhibits in international and Canadian galleries his pastels and canvases, which he describes as searches for "meaning" in colour.

"I paint at least with as much energy as I ever did before, and with as much passion and concentration."
