#46 – Echoes of Silence

Original Work By Jeff Dillon

Here we see the ruins of St. Andrews Cathedral in Scotland. The remains of this solemn stone structure appear poised despite the crumbling walls. Meticulously laid stones once came together to complete its stoic form, where people would share moments of prayer, hope, celebration and tears. The grey and somewhat dim quality of the stones are etched with years of wisdom, taking on an earthy and organic finish, as though they have come to life with age. Slate grey, ochre brown, and burnt sienna pigments lend a washed quality to the stones.

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.
