Robin de Lavis
Hornby Island BC Canada
In contrast to the soft hues of green, grey and blue that surround me, I am a colourist who is drawn to complex pattern and design. I am compelled by the significance of symbolic meaning in nature, especially fish, birds, trees and the cosmos.
I take a dual approach in my art practice, moving from the highly organized and symmetrical where I determine the form, to loose organic painting that allows the medium I use to define the outcome.
