#210 – Dawn Illuminates

Original Work By Jeff Dillon

This autumnal view captures the beauty of the Ausable river, which is east of Lake Placid in the Adirondacks. Autumn is my favourite season. I love it when the trees first start changing from their emerald greens to their fiery fall reds and oranges. There are so many different varieties of trees that exhibit unique and vibrant fall colors. It’s exciting to witness the changing foliage, anticipating which tree will turn next. It’s easy to forget that leaves always contain these vibrant warm pigments, and that it’s simply a lack of chlorophyll that reveals them in the fall. In this piece, the horizon has a light and hazy cloud cover but you can still see the blue sky through it. The river is shallow, reflecting the sky, rippling through the rocks that have barely peaked through the surface. This piece is glowing with intricate brush strokes of quinacridone red, naples yellow, and cobalt teal. There are many pigments on this canvas, highlighting the intensity of colour we see in fall.

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.
