Geoff Phillips: Plantscapes of the Prairies
Until June 23 - Monday to Friday 9am-5pm
This exhibition challenges people to look closer at their environment, to see it in new ways, to learn about the different species found in our South Western Saskatchewan landscape, and illustrates a new world of plant life underfoot. Phillips is from Maple Creek and the Grasslands National Park, Cypress Hills Centre Block, Cypress Hills West Block, and the Frenchman River Valley have inspired his work.
Phillips’ process includes driving to his selected location, mountain biking with rolled canvas in his knapsack, finding a section of land, unrolling the primed canvas on the ground, paint-sketching the scene/plants, and rolling it back up to stretch and paint in oils later in his studio. He takes many close-up photographs of the various elements and plants found within the scene. Some photos are chosen for reference and printing. These photos along with the paint sketch and the artists memory/experience of the land inform the painting process. Without that one-on-one with the land the painting has no life.
