Fresh, Spring art show at Tay Gallery features four accomplished area artists: Ted Duncan, Denis Larouche, Twyla Webster and Paulette Sauve .
We are pleased to welcome guest artists Ted Duncan and Denis Larouche to the gallery this month.
Ted Duncan, Kanata area artist presents a number of encaustic work of urban landscapes in this show. Duncan paints in various media, encaustic and/ or in combination with oil and alkyd paint. He also paints in watercolours and pastel, recently a series of figure paintings of musicians at their craft. Most of his painting effforts are placed on design and happenstance patterns in the world. His emphasis is to limit the pictorial considerations of his images – emphasizing elements of line shape, colour, and texture of of design and pattern while still working within a representional mode.Ted Duncan is an elected member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour and a Fellow of the Ottawa Watercolour Society.
Denis Larouche, OCAD alumnus and Gatineau area artist paints impressionistic waterscapes and landscapes. His fascination with the idea in physics that light, matter and energy originate from a single source has led to a more stylized imagery in his paintings where the treatment of open space becomes the real focus. The subject itself becomes key leading into this space and the interpretation of its content. The treatment becomes a search in itself, obeying laws and a logic that exist only within the painting. Larouche has participated in solo and group exhibitions in the region and is a member of regional art associations . His work is hung in corporate and private collections across Canada.
Paulette Sauve presents abstracted landscapes that emphasize colour, texture and form in her latest landscape series. Paulette Sauve , Vercheres area resident, is an award winning artist with a Masters in Fine Arts degree. Much of her inspiration is found in lakes and marshed of Ontario, Quebec and New England states. She has obtained grants and awards from the Canada Arts Council, Quebec Cultural Affairs Grant Program and 50th Golden Jubilee Medal awarded by Governor General of Canada. Her work is found in corporate, public and private collections in USA , Europe and Canada.
Twyla Webster is a Canadian artist known primarily for her renditions of the countryside of the Rideau/Ottawa Valley. Using brush or palette knife, she creates works of rich colour and pervasive strength in a powerfully expressive style. A professional artist for many years, she was born in Federicton New Brunswick in 1953, raised and educated in Toronto, graduating with an Honours BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts degree ) from York University. Twyla has numerous works housed in corporate as well as private collections across Canada.
