PHILIP CRAIG, "THE CANADA PROJECT, OTTER LAKE", SEPTEMBER 22 - OCTOBER 6, IN TORONTO

This is the first exhibition in a forthcoming series of shows by Philip Craig devoted to the majesty and mystery of our Canadian landscape. The Otter Lake collection of paintings is inspired by the raw beauty that lies just outside the artist's new studio on Otter Lake near Ottawa. Craig gives the viewer a variety of striking and unusual vantage points. A remote cliff-edged lookout, the fading light on a wilderness lake, a discovered hidden inlet by canoe - all are subjects of his large-scale canvases.

"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
