Trailside Galleries is pleased to present, Chasing the Light, a showcase of new works by Canadian artist Jeremy Browne. The show will be on exhibit at the gallery from February 5th through the 17th.
Jeremy grew up in the northern most part of Brampton Ontario, spending much of his childhood near the vast farming community of central Ontario. Born to parents who had a genuine love for the outdoors, every weekend of his youth was spent camping in northern Ontario in National and Provincial Parks.
When Jeremy began showing an interest in art he naturally gravitated towards the things that he knew best; open land, farming communities and the rocky shorelines. After learning various techniques in acrylic, Jeremy found that painting the rural areas provided the greatest challenge and satisfaction. Painting these areas allowed him to explore the effect of light on the land. One of the greatest challenges was portraying various lighting effects - the early morning sunrise or a mid-winter evening. Lighting and the effects of light on the buildings in these areas provide him the passion to paint.
Most of Jeremy’s paintings are done in either late fall or winter. By painting the landscape in its barest form, there is nothing to hide the natural beauty. With summer he finds that the light is obstructed, and not allowed to shine at its purist form. “I have found that painting a winter landscape allows me to focus all of my attention on the light and mood of my painting, and not focus on the foliage of a tree. This allows me to explore new ways to produce interesting lighting effects in my landscapes."
The artist will have approximately 8 to 12 new, finished studio works for the showcase and are available for immediate purchase.
