Artist of the Month of April is Gary Whitley

Artist Statement:

For Gary, painting is an obsession. He has been a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists since 1978 and has been influenced by many of the Senior members through attending countless workshops, and was awarded AFCA status in 1986.

Subject matter, color, composition and perspective are important in any painting; however a pronounced light source and atmospheric perspective are very important in all his paintings. With these two elements, he is able to achieve a sense of the third dimension. He always tries to create a real sense of air in his paintings. As one of his mentors put it, “We are painting shapes that have air between them, therefore paint air”.

He has lived in the North Okanagan valley of British Columbia for 29 years and many of his landscapes are of the area, however some are derived from long hours on horseback in remote high-elevation back country that few people have the opportunity to see. My wife and I spend considerable time riding in the summer, all over B.C. and Alberta. His florals are all a result of the extensive flower garden she has created. I also paint subject matter that I simply find interesting.
