Original Work By Jeff Dillon

This chimpanzee appears very similar to us, and the likeness is exactly what inspired this piece. I have an affinity for painting animals’ faces, close up, where it feels like the animal is looking back at you. My intention is for the animal to meet your gaze, as if they’re focusing on you the same way you’re focusing on them. This chimpanzee has a look of wisdom and knowledge to its eyes and facial structure. The painting is rich in warm ochre browns and cyan oranges, complemented with warm magentas and blues.

Original Size: 20″ x 20″

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.
