Canadian Art Collective: Point of View

From the painter’s eye - a moment in time, the light of an instant within our ever changing environment, is captured with oil paint. 

Point of View brings the Canadian Art Collective, a group of artists gathered together by colour, the love of oil paint, and the place we live in, whether urban, rural or wilderness; who observe moments each from their particular view point and each with their particular style of painting.

These artists have honed their skills and developed their personal styles over years of professional work and exhibitions.  The paintings are sensual with texture and colour ranging from the bold expressionistic brushstrokes of Stewart Jones to the silken strokes and subtle colour of Peter Rotter.  David Lidbetter’s sophisticated and mysterious application defies analysis; while Laurie De Camillis applies paint with bold directness, painting only what is necessary. 

The Canadian Art Collective is dedicated to observing the continuing and evolving relationship we have with our environment.  In support of a swimmable, drinkable, fishable water, these artists will each have a painting up for auction with the full proceeds going toOttawa Riverkeeper - one image, four painters, four different styles, four points of view.

The vision of each artist is personal while still being representational with a documentary approach.  The members of the Canadian Art Collective are carrying on the cool objective approach, a tradition of excellence that we, Canadians, find in our research, photography and documentary films.  They have exhibited extensively in Canada and the US and their work can be found in numerous private, corporate and public collections.
