Lesley Finlayson: Filter/ed
Elissa Cristall Gallery, Vancouver, BC - Oct 3 – 26
Scottish-born, Vancouver-based Lesley Finlayson paints landscape sketches en plein air, in the tradition of the French Impressionists and Canada’s Group of Seven. Her most recent series of highly gestural works focuses on light filtering through the natural environment of the West Coast. Finlayson writes that she hopes “to project an idea of the moment … seeing the landscape unfold before me.” The play of weather effects is echoed in the varied formal qualities of her medium.
