NORTHERN EMBERS reflects the artist's love of the outdoors. The layers of colours and palette knife strokes in the work is typical of Joel Masewich's bold and vibrant style, and here the richness is deep and compelling. A gorgeous piece for a space that would showcase a vertical canvas.
Acrylic on Canvas, 20" x 50”. Due to the size and nature of paintings, this piece is available at the gallery only, Cedar Lake Studios, 27 Ainslie St. N. Cambridge, Ontario.
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.
