Leanne Baird, Up Came the Sun


  • Colborne Street Gallery Fenelon Falls, Ontario (map)

Baird’s paintings are both a study of the physical and metaphysical. Exploring the natural landscape and investigating the way light behaves in these environments are constant sources of inspiration for her work. Deconstructing these complex environments into the basic elements of art, Baird transcribes the line, shape, form, and colour of these quiet moments in nature. Citing painters, Emily Carr and Lawren Harris, as inspiration for both their artwork and their spiritual journey, Baird continues the tradition of Canadian Landscape painting through her recording of scenes in and around the Canadian Shield.
