Janet Read, “Dawn Rise”, 40’x 40″, oil and cold wax on birch panel

In the artist’s words:

“Travelling Mercies” is the title of a show of work from journeys I have taken in the past five years.  I went to China in 2014 and was astounded by the scale of the country, the vast space and numerous people. A series of small works on vellum resulted incorporating motifs in abstract format from that experience.  Travels to Tobermory, and the north and south shores of the St. Lawrence inspired new variations in my fascination with the narrative of water and light, mist and fog.

My work is a contemplative response to the natural world in an action of painterly invention and metaphor.  Rich, saturated colour and loose form inhabit these paintings.
