Last Light on Bay Finn - dark, sunset, landscape, textured, tondo, oil on canvas

1988

US$8,500

About

A silhouette landscape at sunset expands beyond the frame of this unique tondo by Alex Cameron. This circular painting or tondo depicts that last, fleeting moment before the sun sinks below the horizon. Soft tones of peach-orange peek out from behind steel grey clouds and Prussian blue waters. Several sparse trees on rocky islets populate the foreground. The trees in the foreground are created with thick applications of paint that create an almost sculptural surface to the work. Alex Cameron is a celebrated accomplished Canadian contemporary painter, with an exceptional outlook on the world. His current work displays the virtuosity of an artist in his prime as he continues to create new abstract canvases that are among the best. Working in the tradition of Van Gogh, and referencing the work of Canadian landscape painters such as the Group of Seven, his voice is very much his own. Cameron's (b. 1947, Toronto) 40 year career has been defined by a celebration of colour and texture that links post-painterly abstraction with the Canadian wilderness. He studied at the New School of Art in Toronto under non-figurative painters Graham Coughtry, Gord Raynor and Dennis Burton. In the 1970s, he was a studio assistant to the late Jack Bush and worked for the famed Mirvish Gallery. Cameron's work grew from these early exposures to abstraction evident in his flat, animated areas of color that soon gave way to impasto. Bold texture including 'ropes' of pigment applied directly from the tube is a hallmark of Cameron's energetic landscapes.His paintings have been collected extensively in Canada and abroad. Notable collections include the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Bank of Canada, and The Queen’s Silver Jubilee Art Collection.
