#135 – Elusive
Original Work By Jeff Dillon
Riding long grass in the wind, this yellow headed black bird is taking a rest; its silhouette bounces along with the tufty perch. The black feathers are picking up a midnight blue cast from the waning evening sunlight. Thanks to the slightly obscured eyes, the blackbird looks quite inconspicuous, like a little sleuth, checking out the onlooker. The yellow details of the bird’s delicate head are painted in titanate yellow; the tall grass rich is ochre browns and burnt sienna.

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.
