Loch Gallery is delighted to present a much anticipated new collection of paintings by Shannon Craig Morphew. Opening in Toronto and Calgary on Saturday, September 11th, in this latest exhibition Shannon takes the viewer on a journey across the country, from her beloved Newfoundland to the majestic ranges of the Rockies. Influenced by Japanese woodblock prints, Shannon's use of line, paint washes, and thick strokes of colour express a dynamic, personal creative vision.
"Since the beginning, playing amongst the ocean eddies and windswept rocks of Newfoundland, I've held a deep respect and reverence for the natural world. In my paintings I'm able to distill the emotions I've felt at these times to give the viewer a feeling of open sky and powerful immensity of the landscapes that I've experienced first hand. Through abstraction I emphasize the open expanses of cool sky against a still, sunbathed field or a mountain stream where the craggy rocks guide powerful water currents down below." - Shannon Craig Morphew
