CANADIAN ARTIST IVAN UNWIN
Film set drawing became a natural transition
back to traditional painting, although now the same intrinsic questions of
composition, and of colour occupy a single image.
The inspiration for new work came whilst re-fitting a small cabin in the west of Scotland, located in a remote ancient oak forest, that midge infested rain soaked atmosphere
inspired my new painting artwork.
I had a landscape painting from the period shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2005.
With a pin, a map, and the internet my wife
and I moved to Warkworth, Ontario in the winter of 2006. I am now starting to
produce new works with Canadian landscape, traditional
work with a contemporary look.
