40″ x 30″ Acrylic on 1.5″ Canvas
This painting was created to enter the RHGA York Region 2017 Open Juried Art Show. I had discovered that the jurors for the show were going to be Anik Glaude, curator of the Varley Art Gallery and Jeff Nye, a visual artist/curator who’s work I’d seen at the Varley and greatly admired. I wanted to create a piece that represented me as an artist and was an accumulation of my body of work that had gone before it. These were two people who’s opionion I have the utmost respect for. I was delighted to find out that the piece had not only been accepted into the show but had also won an Honourable Mention Award.
