The Galleries


The galleries section is organized primarily in chronological order. Gallery one, the earliest work, includes reinterpretations of classical works in terms of modern issue/events. “Hockey moment,” for example, depicts concern expressed for hockey player, Steve Moore, after he was “hit” by Todd Bertuzzi. For this painting I used the colours and composition of Giotto’s 14th century fresco” The lamentation.” Galleries 2 through 6 document my continuing fascination with the figure. Experimenting with contrast, surface, colour and line, I explore the relationship between figure and ground. Gallery 7 documents commissioned public art. Gallery 8 describes new directions with the figure and explorations into abstraction.
