Erica Hawkes: Convergence


Works by Erica Hawkes express a distinct west-coast aesthetic in their vistas, luminous colours, and boldly contoured shapes. Hawkes fuses influences from 20th century art movements including Art Nouveau, Cubism and the Group of Seven. Rolling mountains, billowing clouds and reflective expanses of water are captured as impressions for the viewer through the use of sharply angular, or elegantly sinuous, fields of colour. Hawkes’ paintings emit their own inherent glow that immediately calls and holds our attention.
