Sylvia Simpson (Solo Exhibition)
March 26, 2016 - April 23, 2016
Opening Reception: April 10, 2016, 4:00 pm-6:00 pm
Sylvia works primarily in oils, watercolours, and acrylics. Her subjects are landscapes, cityscapes, florals and abstracts. Sylvia captures the energy of her subject through light and colour. In 2014, Sylvia switched her subjects to the fields of Haldimand Country, Bruce County, and Manitoulin Island.
“fields are alive with energy and possibility. In our urban world, they are threatened. Development over agricultural fields is a regular sight as we drive through Ontario. They are obliterated to be paved over for housing developments and box stores. My field paintings dare the viewer to see these fields as dynamic fields of energy, life, possibilities, and harbours for human existence as they are. As they are.”
