"Exploring Paradise: New Works by Philip Craig", September 7-14, 2019 in Toronto

Loch Gallery is excited to present "Exploring Paradise", a new series of works by Philip Craig inspired by the flora of the tropics. In this latest collection, Craig explores the raw beauty and unity of nature found on the Mexican island Cozumel. Large-scale canvases of banana groves and coconut palms restore a sense of awe and tranquility into our lives. Craig's painterly style and expressive colouration, in all shades of green, ignite a desire to live with his work. This new series also features playful watercolour sketches of the local environment and deftly crafted smaller studies for larger banana tree paintings - all exhibiting Craig's impeccable use of light, his trademark strength.

"Light is the engine of my composition. I use multiple layers of coloured glazes with alternating layers of solid, deliberate strokes of paint to convey the effect of light on my subject. This interprets my experience and vision in a direct way with the viewer."

Philip Craig will be in attendance on Saturday, September 7th from 2-4pm in our Toronto gallery.
