Energies

After a while of different directions (turtles, moose, aboriginal inspired styles), I found myself swinging back to the knives. I had a need to return to bolder, bigger, more movement. There were energies at play, building, waiting to be told in giant stories with broad strokes, energetic slashes and colour, colour and more colour.

Awakenings was the first to emerge, followed by Vertigo, the largest canvas to date that I have worked on, almost as tall as I am. Both of these are going to TAG Art Gallery in St Catherines, along with Ghost Spirit and others.

The last one is untitled to date as it is still a work in progress, but it is pure energy, an explosion of colour. We will see where that one ends up, but channeling energies seems to be where I will be playing for the next while.

Off to the Fall Show it Goes

“Compartmentalizing” is heading to the fall group show at the fabulous TAG Art Gallery in St Catherine’s. If you are ever in the Niagara area, I highly recommend that you pop in on your way through. Located in a quaint redesigned older building that still retains its architectural charm from yesteryear, Tom Goldspink has put together an intriguing and diverse collection of fabulous artists, not to mention the collection of historical prints. If you do get to go, the effusively warm and knowledgable Frank will guide you through the gallery, his passion and acumen for art clearly evident as you tour room after room of beautiful pieces in such a lovely range of styles and sizes, that you are sure to fall in love with one of them. Put some art and wine tours on your fall calendar…a perfectly scrumptious way to ease yourself from summer into the crisp notes of fall.
