#192 – The Gentle Giant
Original Work By Jeff Dillon
Newfoundland dogs are gentle and calculated souls despite their large stature. This peaceful and loving dog has a deep black fuzzy coat which floats around it like a soft aura. Communicating dark layers of texture can lead to a muted finish so instead the dog’s lofty coat is achieved with layers of cool blues and black line. The background mirrors the cool blues, so as not to distract from its face. A flowing sea of colours and fur leads you to the dog’s tender eyes. This piece reminds us that our animals at home are just as majestic as the animals in nature.

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.
