current exhibit Aleda O'Connor Effects of Weather


May 4 - June 8, 2017


Aleda O’Connor is a Toronto-born, Hamilton-based artist and a Fine Art graduate from the University of Guelph. She has been working in oil pastels for more than 20 years, one of very few artists to work primarily in this medium.


Aleda O’Connor’s unique and ethereal oil pastel paintings examine the ways in which atmosphere and landscape are defined by light, air and water. While her subjects are instantly recognizable, they balance a creative tension between the requirements of the oil pastel and her visual exploration of the effect of weather on her subjects. Her distinctive mark making and textured surfaces emerge from a commitment to drawing that underpins a vigorous engagement with her preferred wood panels. She employs various combinations of cross-hatching, scratching and scraping to layer lines and masses of colour.
