FALLS

The Falls series  began in 2015 at the Leighton Colony at the Banff Centre and finished in 2016.

This series was a direct tribute to my late father  -H.G. Trevelyan, a professional photographer and  inveterate outdoorsman, who took us to his favourite hiking places in the Canadian rockies throughout my childhood.

For this series I deliberately explored  a range of painting styles from expressionism to Cubism and Art Deco.

The series was exhibited in Red Deer 2017, The Cité Francophoné in Edmonton and at Elevation Place in Canmore in 2018.

The above studies were quick gestural works based on hikes up Sundance Canyon. They are 18x28cm- acrylic, wax resist, chalk and graphite on Arches Aquarelle paper. The idea was to capture the freshness of the air and the energy of the fall.

Sundance was a larger work on Arches Aquarelle that payed homage quite directly to Fernand Leger's early Cubist work around 1911-12

The Falls series has been exhibited at the Cité Francophone in Edmonton in 2018;
