          Grandiose 2010 
The Grand River Water Shed
  Colour - Shape - Texture        


I will be capturing images using field studies and photography throughout the Grand River Water Shed using these images as inspiration and stepping stones in the creation of “LANDSTRACTS” abstract landscape paintings.  These studies will involve travelling throughout the water shed area on rivers, paths and less travelled roads capturing images depicting the spirit of the landscape which has been forgotten given our busy lifestyles.  These studies will be assembled into approximately 50 image triptage-collage pieces to be shown as an introduction to the paintings within the “Grandiose” project.  Approximately 20 large format paintings will be produced inspired by the field studies.  These paintings will focus on the Colour, Shape and Texture of the water shed, showing a new perspective on a traditional subject matter. Combining the studies and paintings into a single gallery space will allow the viewer the opportunity to appreciate the scale of the project and see the processes behind the creation of the final abstract paintings.
