Fire and Ice

Winter landscape painting is arguably the best time of the year for color and plein air painting. The sunlight in the winter is often thought of as grey and overcast, but often when the sun is out, it will reflect the sunlight and brighten the landscape. These paintings highlight the red and blue, warm and cool aspects of the landscape, the rough and soft textures of the snow, and the clear blue sky only winter can provide. I have paired the winter painting with a selection of hot and summery experiences of the sun. The sun in each season effect overall effect of the landscape.

Byron Hodgins

Byron Hodgins received a B.F.A from Nova Scotia School of Art and Design. He lives and works in Ottawa and has exhibited across Canada. He is fascinated with documenting the most ordinary parts of the everyday and the imaginary life inspired by nature.

His work has been featured by organizations such as Magazine 1968, and reviewed by the Toronto Star.

Hodgins uses landscape like a mirror. Through colour, abstract symbolism, and grand romantic gestures the visible exterior manifest the invisible interior until the two are irrevocably intermingled. Here an innate understanding of the metaphysical expresses itself through nature,where each curve of light becomes a stroke in an almost holy alphabet. The results are trance-like meditations on the illusion of duality, a challenge to the viewer to see their oneness with the world so seemingly around them.
