Fractured Landscapes

 

Fractured Landscapes Banner

The Fractured Landscapes feature four abstract “sculptural paintings” that capture the natural beauty inherent in the landscapes of the Interior, Coastal, Lower Mainland, and Northern regions of British Columbia. The “sculptural paintings” are a hybrid of both sculpture and painting. The composition of the “sculptural paintings” consist of a metal framework with various shapes of canvas integrated into it to provide a three-dimensional effect. This effect is enhanced by acrylic colour and texture. The fractured effect is achieved through a physical separation of canvas by varying positions within the metal frameworks to achieve a sense of depth. As well as providing structure to the work, the frameworks becomes an artistic element in themselves. The overall structure allows the paintings to evolve into a multi-level, multi-perspective abstract painting rather than assuming a conventional rectangular landscape form. With appropriate lighting, shadows are cast on the canvas to provide a visual transition between the sculptured framework and the canvas.
