#200 – Observer
Original Work By Jeff Dillon
Sitting with its buttery wings on show, this tiger swallowtail butterfly is taking a pause on a butterfly bush bloom. Although not native to canada, this plant is heavily fragranced and rich in nectar and often interests many pollinators. The butterfly bush is a reminder that environments are frequently changing, and our actions have a direct impact on the delicate beings that make up our ecosystems. The wings of the tiger swallowtail are detailed in light bismuth and naples yellow, cobalt blue, and cadmium orange. The background is finished in vibrant phthalo green, while the butterfly blossom is rich in magenta hues.

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.
