These recent paintings offer visual stories taken from the artist’s everyday experiences, travels, and imagination. These new paintings cover the period of 2022 to current day.  Here you will find paintings with iconic Canadian imagery; set against vivid and playful backgrounds that are sometimes otherworldly. These original acrylic and oil paintings collage together landscapes, people, nature, wildlife, shapes and vivid colours. Weaving new visual stories on canvas that have a distinctly Canadian pop art style, the vision of a Canadian artist known as the ‘Iconic Canuck’.

Here you will find imagery of east coast locales, snowy landscapes of the Rocky Mountains, ice skaters on outdoor ponds, canoes in spectacular locations, stories of a polar bear king, Canadian wildlife set against vivid backgrounds of simplified shape and colour, all communicating visual stories about the continuing journey of this Canadian painter. Where there is endless enthusiasm for life and exploration. These original artworks are about seeing the magic in the world, the wonder. Painted by an adult, from the perspective of the child within.

Capturing the spirit of the landscape, transcendental, and other worldly. A distinct signature of the painter, Saturley’s landscapes are rendered using a combination of acrylics, gouache and oils. The paintings are vivid contemporary works that are anchored in traditional painting techniques, but also incorporate modern and simplified elements and forms. The ‘pop art style’ outlines move the work from realism to surrealism. “I have been drawn to the works of Lawren Harris from his Group of Seven period, but also love how he evolved his work into more abstract realms with the Transcendental Painting Group. When I decide on what I am painting, I begin with a central character. Whether that character is a mountain, a moose, or a human matters not, I’m looking for a starting point to my visual story on canvas. These days I rely heavily on intuition to guide me, and even I discover things within my work years down the road, that I did not see when I was creating the piece. I think this is what makes great art, the ability to see new things in the work for years to come.”
