statement

The way we interact with our environment influences the way we see things and frame the things we see. We take insubstantial, fragmented images and fill them out to make complete narratives.

It is this tension between the negative space, what is withheld from the frame of the painting and what is suggested that engages the viewer in a conversation with my work. I am showing part of a picture or world which exists beyond the realm of the canvas in the mind of the viewer. This conversation between the viewer and the painting, between description and abstraction is the most vital element of my painting.

Say hello to this ‘electric forest’ @diannawittegallery . Channeling a long weekend vibe.

Canopy - 40x60”

These pieces all found their way to one home . The client arranged them in this way, I love the progression of colour and ideas he made with his choices. I also believe that this sorta thing along with salon walls are excellent ideas. They allow the collector to easily rearrange the pieces so they are able to see things with clear eyes.

These pieces are part of my art for groceries series. I’m experimenting with new ideas with them and donating 10% of the proceeds towards charity. The 6x6” in this series (like these) are $185. Including tax. I’ll be refreshing my website with some other grocery pieces. (6x12, 6x8, 8x8”)

It’s Friday and I’m dreaming of a weekend getaway. This is what I’m thinking will likely happen with a bit of 🛶 🏕 🚲 🔥 🚶‍♂️ . What on your slate … (garden and stuff too of course)

These pieces are available @buttergallery151 , @algonquinartcentre etc

Scale matters. Playing with size and colour and composition. Always trying to create a space to engage the viewer in a conversation that extends beyond the confines of the painting.

I think these all succeed in their own ways. Is there a palate or piece that engages you more? 1 = biggest. 2 = trying harder (turquoise) 3 = intense (golden) 4 = mini

Love this piece . Love this series. Electric forest 48x48”

I’ve been working on this piece much of this week . Different scale, different palate. Like what’s happening here. The movement and the mark making and the colours. It’s always a new challenge.

A day of reversals. We finally have a rainy day , the kinda day my garden and the trees revel in .

That’s the impetus towards posting these two pieces which are kinda a reverse of each other . Same palate, different proportions. Two electric forests . 30x60” and 48x52”

The creation of a new piece in stages. Trying to leave enough room for the imagination of the viewer. Always the hardest state , leaving it without over describing. 20x60” title pending

Happy Canada day!

Algonquin park : one of my favourite places. This piece is here @algonquinartcentre .

The unplugged series of paintings is based on inspiration drawn from hikes , walks , paddles and bikes out and about. It’s about connecting to nature and nature bathing.

The colours are often imagined hopefully these pieces engage your imagination. Escape trajectory variation 5 - 16x16” available @buttergallery151

I like both of these incarnations. Similar but different. Happy with both . 8x8” and 24x24”

Should I try bigger ? I’m thinking YES because bigger is always better except when it isn’t … and if I’m not screwing up , I’m not trying .

Here’s a toast to pushing yourself! 🥂
