This large oil compels you to use all your senses. Is it a landscape, a seascape, something else entirely? Created with layers of colours, shifting with the growing and waning light of day, this piece is intriguing at any time of day. The wood cradled panel supports are built from the roof battens of the artist's 1860 stone cottage. You can still see the original nail holes in the sides. A piece that is at once calming, and provocative, and just stunning in any setting. SENTIENT may be that piece that "speaks" to you!
Size 48" x 48" Oil on cradled wood panel. Due to the size of this painting, it is available at Cedar Lake Studios, 27 Ainslie St. N. Cambridge only - no shipping available.
Artist: Drawing was the one constant during Troy Stewart's childhood on the seas. Troy was born in the Caribbean and raised on a sailboat, eventually staying on land long enough to graduate from the Bristol Art College in the UK. Since settling in Canada, she has earned her keep as an award-winning graphic designer for both corporate clients and non-profit organizations, all the while continuing her art practice through painting, photography and life drawing. Most recently Troy (known as TUS on her artworks) has developed a habit with oil paints, and has carried her attention to texture, abstract form and natural beauty into her new work. Cambridge, Ontario is now home for Troy, but the magnificent and ever-present horizons of her childhood inspire her still, and often appear in her work consciously and unconsciously.
