#197 – Wanderer
Original Work By Jeff Dillon
The contrasting pigments in this piece make it hard to look away. There is something viscerally satisfying about the contrasting qualities of the rich cobalt and violet colours that juxtapose the cadmium orange and yellow. The subject of this painting is the iconic monarch, perched on a lush blossom of salvia. The salvia flower is rich in nectar, and all pollinators flock to it for sustenance. We humans flock to this herbaceous plant not only for its beautiful colours, but for the never ending display of pollinators that orbit its blossoms.

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.
