Glenbow Museum, Calgary, Sybil Andrews, 1982, same image, catalogue #48

Inspired by the dynamism of the Futurist movement, Sybil Andrews crafted an indelible series of linocuts featuring figures in motion; particularly the figure at work. Andrews was sensitive to this theme, having worked in England during the Second World War in the yards of the British Power Boat Company. After relocating to Vancouver Island in 1947, she was inspired by the local logging community in Campbell River to create Coffee Bar. In this superb linocut, Andrews crafts a rhythmic composition through the varying angles of the men’s elbows and caps, while the vibrancy of their patterned shirts expresses a jaunty vitality. Coffee Bar is a striking example of Sybil Andrews’ admiration of the daily experiences of working communities and a celebration of her new home.
