Philip Craig & Shannon Craig Morphew, Father & Daughter Explore Lake Rosseau, in Toronto

Philip with Shannon

Loch Gallery Toronto is delighted to present "Father and Daughter Explore Lake Rosseau", an exhibition of new paintings by Philip Craig & Shannon Craig Morphew. In this show, the two artists translate the natural beauty of the Lake Rosseau region in their own unique styles.

Philip Craig has an extraordinary ability to connect with the viewer. Through his richly expressive brushwork and his impeccable knowledge of light, Philip invites the viewer to join him as he explores narrow passageways and rocky shorelines of Lake Rosseau.

"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

Shannon Craig Morphew is known for her powerful and energetic skyscapes, emphasized by her expressive use of line. We stand on a shoreline and look across the lake, feeling the wind rustling the trees on remote lake islands, the sky a dramatic backdrop to the scene. Influenced by Japanese woodblock prints, the artist’s active brushwork, minimal colour and dream-like compositions express a very personal and unique creative vision.

"Since the beginning, playing amongst the ocean eddies and windswept rocks of Newfoundland, I've held a deep respect and reverence for the natural world. In my paintings I'm able to distill the emotions I've felt at these times to give the viewer a feeling of open sky and powerful immensity of the landscapes that I've experienced first hand. Through abstraction I emphasize the open expanses of cool sky against a still, sunbathed field or a mountain stream where the craggy rocks guide powerful water currents down below." - Shannon Craig Morphew
