Newzones Gallery Of Contemporary Art is pleased to present our annual landscape exhibition featuring nine leading contemporary painters’ explorations of landscape. LANDSCAPE X 9 is an exhibition of works by PAUL BELIVEAU (Montréal), JEROEN WITVLIET (Netherlands), GREG EDMONSON (Calgary), JOHN FOLSOM (Kansas), LYNN MALIN (Edmonton), DON POLLACK (Chicago), KEVIN SONMOR (Montréal), and BARRY WEISS (Saskatoon). All nine artists are pushing the boundaries of landscape painting to produce work that is both personal and universal in its depiction of the natural world that surrounds us.
Although each deals with a commonly depicted genre, the landscape, this is the only cohesion to the artworks. The media range from traditional oil on canvas to silver-gelatin photography to encaustic. The styles skip from romantic to fractured to expressive. The mood changes from somber to calm to vibrant.
