Winter Trees is a an exhibition by artist Francis Domingue on display at Neighbourhood Gallery North from September 24 to November 25. Attend the Opening Reception on October 1, 12-1pm.
The true beauty of trees was revealed to me as I biked home from work on winter evenings. I began to notice the bare branches of trees silhouetted on the night sky … their black bones contrasted against a variety of atmospheric hues.
My goal is to capture the stillness of trees in winter by stylizing the plasticity of their branches and removing the sense of depth from the image.
The paintings on canvas are bordered with rough wood strips … usually lathe discarded from houses being renovated, but also other pieces of wood that have lost their use.
More recently, I have been painting directly on wood itself … sometimes driftwood from beaches, but also other unwanted odds and ends found while walking in the neighborhood – a wine crate, an old fence, a wooden door mat and a pair of magnificent slabs of pine
