I chose to paint a dragonfly because I felt challenged by the composition. I worked carefully to mix pigments that would communicate the iridescent panes of the dragonfly’s wings; depending on the light, the wings can appear semi translucent or like a glimmering mosaic of colours. I find it interesting that the colours of the wings don’t fully represent what lies in front or behind them.

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.
