“A world where light and movement are tangible; where sky and water are ever-changing; where some features of the landscape call for thick, opaque paint while others whisper for translucent glazes of thin washes — this is Elzbieta Krawecka’s Newfoundland and Labrador.” Tara Bradbury, The Telegraph
Elzbieta Krawecka: Twig
September 7 – 26, 2012
James Baird Gallery
Pouch Cove, Newfoundland
Former DFG artist Elzbieta Krawecka has a stunning collection of new paintings opening at James Baird Gallery this week. Her new series of paintings are inspired by a recent trip to Canada’s Arctic along with numerous visits to Newfoundland and Labrador. Krawecka was taken in by the red blueberry foliage covering the tundra and the Arctic’s wide open spaces. This fascination with vast vistas and the way nature patterns landscapes is mirrored in her paintings of Atlantic Canada’s landscapes as well.
Elzbieta has shared with us images from her travels and I think you will see how wonderfully she has captured the essence of these iconic Canadian landscapes in her paintings.
Congratulations, Elzbieta, you have put together another beautiful exhibition!
