Original Work By Jeff Dillon

The monarch is an iconic butterfly species and easily recognized thanks to their regal colours and patterns. This monarch is feeding on the nectar of the goldenrod flower. Monarch butterflies are not only beautiful, they help indicate the health of our ecosystems. They also have an impressive migration pattern, travelling nearly 2000 miles between canada and mexico each winter. When they migrate they form groups called roosts or bivouacs, travelling by day to their new location. This piece uses quinacridone gold and ochre yellow to express the luminous nature of the butterfly’s wings, while the background and flower share sap green and yellow iron oxide pigments.

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.
