PORTRAITS OF THE LANDSCAPE - New paintings by Brandy Saturley.
As I move forward with my exploration of painting Canada I have come to focus on re-framing landscape painting in Canada. With these new paintings I am taking symbolic elements of the landscape, and re-constructing the landscape in a new way. These symbolic landscapes are figurative and also abstract in nature. I am breaking down the landscape into pieces and re-assembling into towers of meaning and symbolism. I am fascinated with telling the story of the landscape and am drawn to the mountain archetype in building these artworks in portrait format versus traditional landscape orientation. These are my 'Portraits of The Landscape.'
