Enjoy this new short video explaining Jennifer's painting process.
For the past several months I've been working on my exhibition for Canada House Gallery - the new pieces will be posted on their website next week. I've also been working with friend /musician/ film maker/fellow explorer Glenn Thorpe (Back-Forty Productions) on a short video about my painting process for the Canada House Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwUhKgoOKvHPMZo4Iid1YtQ. A huge thanks to Glenn for his expertise, creativity, and patience!Posted by Annesley Studio on Friday, 4 March 2016
"Alpine Prospects" | Watercolour | 28 x 38” (42 x 52” framed) has been accepted through two juries to be featured in International Artist Magazine's April/May landscape issue. This piece is based on a sunset I was lucky to see while staying at the Alpine Club of Canada's Elizabeth Parker Hut at Lake O'Hara . Thunder rolled in from the west, while last light illuminated the spectacular peaks of Yoho National Park, reflected in the perfectly still kettle pond near the hut; the calm before the storm. It will be part of "The Architecture of Landscape" exhibition at Canada House Gallery April 6-19.
"Alpine Prospects" has been awarded the Grand Prize for Landscape from International Artist Magazine, and has earned Jennifer a 4 page editorial in American Art Collector, April 2016 issue, in addition to the April 2016 issue of International Artist.
Solo Exhibition | Canada House Gallery, Banff Alberta | Artist's Reception: April 16, 2016
An exploration of the architectural qualities of landscape, in terms of structure, strength, line, and geometry, and how architecture relates to its surroundings, the landscape. Our terminology of mountains especially uses architectural language ie. spire, castle, buttress, fortress, column, cathedral and so on, and it feels natural to use these terms when experiencing the mountains. The theory of Prospect and Refuge is a secondary theme of many of the works, that humans are most comfortable when they have the capacity to observe (prospect) without being seen (refuge,) - being protected while having a view. The exhibition will be comprised of both landscapes and architecture, and a small number of still lifes in architectural settings.
