Gerhard Richter (1932 - ) is an inspiration to this accomplished Canadian painter, and in this piece you can see some of the German painter's influence. Layers of colours is a signature of Joel Masewich's work, but here he has created a more linear piece than is typical for him. The colours are still vibrant and plentiful, and are "framed" by a quieter layered outline. A beautiful larger piece that will compel you to view it again and again.

The Artist: Joel Masewich, a full-time artist for 35 years, is based in Salem, Ontario, near the banks of the Irvine River. Joel’s work is inspired by the nature experienced everyday, and on his frequent kayaking and hiking trips. His work is known for the rich layers and visual references to water and light, blurring the line between representational and abstract painting. His graphite markings, line and brush work, and his use of palette knives create the layers and sharp colour extremes in his works on paper and canvas. Joel is also known, and regularly commissioned, for large landscape works of acrylic, layered with stainless and powder coated steel and copper. His work is collected by both private collectors and major corporations and has been featured in exhibitions and galleries across North America.
