April 11 - April 25, 2015
In Nancy Ruhl's second solo exhibition at Madrona Gallery, the artist had built a series of new paintings based on the ever changing landscape of Victoria. This collection reflects on Ruhl's passion for painting what she sees and her desire to capture the colour, heritage and style of Victoria.
Through my travels I have always been drawn to isolated places. In the past these were physical geographical parts of the world I have experienced. Now I find myself going inward, areas of spiritual and emotional isolation that I find disturbing and fascinating. I find recording the former on board or canvas much easier than the latter, but that only adds to the attraction.
"Inspired by the West Coast and its many incredible cloud formations, my paintings are a direct response to the silent beauty of light penetrating the darkness which brings a sense of calmness to all it envelops. Traveling along the coast has provided an endless source of material from which I am creating a new West Coast Landscape series for future shows."
