#128 – Heirs to the Forest
Original Work By Jeff Dillon
A mother bear leads her cubs along a flowing river. This watery path is a close relative of the bear. Acting as a steward of her forest, she is passing on the generational instinct of fishing and navigation to her cubs. The comforting relationship between the bears and the river creates a sense of lushness and safety. The forest is rich in yellow, and the bears are touched with both the warmth of the forest and the coolness of the river. Strikingly, the cadmium yellow foliage of the trees is reflecting onto the river and the bears’ rich brown coats. There is an understanding of oneness between the bears and their environment.

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.
