Inspired by a trip to Lake O'Hara, Philip Craig's new exhibition showcases his awe of the Rockies.
"My first experience with the mountains was on a camping trip with my family in the summer of 1962. To this day I remember how that first view of the magnificent peaks took a hold of my imagination and inspired some of my very first oil paintings. I have since been lucky enough to return many times to Banff and Jasper, to wander through the many mountain passes, and take in the great beauty our great Canadian treasure has to offer.
Not long ago my son, photographer Jordan Craig, and I were afforded the unique experience of traveling up to Lake O’Hara as guests of Ian Loch and his family; we stayed at the Lodge and hiked the trails of this stunningly beautiful place. In this collection of new works you will find many compositions gleaned from this unforgettable trip. I have been to many mountain ranges in my time—from the Alps to the Andes—but even from a Canadian boy's perspective, nothing really compares to the breathtaking Canadian Rockies."
