Description

E. G. Blundell is fast becoming known as a leading renegade in the reinterpretation of the Canadian landscape. Rejecting a traditional approach to landscape painting, he considers himself to be the receiver and conduit of the life force contained within bodies of rock and the landscape, and he does not agree with the conventional belief that there is a difference between realism and abstraction; to him they are one and the same. Victoria Ward, a former playwright, now paints using recycled and found items. "Victoria Ward...paints as if she is moving through a landscape in spirit only, as if her gaze is split between our world and some ethereal, phantom space, a fog and vapour realm wherein objects, vistas, architecture and sentient life are reduced to their most vital, primordial selves."
