#115 – Spiritual Messenger

Original Work By Jeff Dillon

A cardinal sits perched amongst the woody branches of a tree as if ready for flight. It’s dark stone eye, and head cocked toward the viewer as if listening for a message.There is an energy to this painting in the bold carnelian red of the feathers, contrasted against the twisted branch and pale sky hinted at in the background of this piece. Did you know that the word cardinal comes from the Latin word cardio, which means like a hinge? Perhaps this is why people believe cardinals are messengers from beyond, traveling back and forth between the earth and the spirit world.

Jeff Dillon the Canadian Artist, inspired by the bold colours and brush strokes of Post-Impressionist Artists. His unique style focuses on capturing light, not through the detail of realism, but with gesture, illusion, shape and colour. He offers a personal and distinctive style to the world through his bold use of colours and lines, often symbolic images or subject matter. Objects in the paintings retain their realistic appearance yet have a vibrancy and fluidity about them, unique to his work. Jeff Dillon’s new expression of Post-Impressionism is both beloved and revered in the Canadian and Global Contemporary Art World.
