VAM’s Featured Artist for the month of June is member artist Ian Varney. Ian is an active Member at VAM and visitors may recognize his vibrant landscapes in the VAM Gallery. Here is Ian’s artist statement for more information:
“I completed my advanced Diploma of Fine Art at La Trobe College in Melbourne Australia ( 2004). Prior to that I was a family physician practicing just around the corner from VAM!
My work is inspired by the natural beauty of cottage country, where I have a studio near Haliburton. I am always experimenting with different techniques and products ,hoping to capture the beauty, colour and changeability of this wooded landscape.
I find Oil Sticks, on an underpainting of acrylic paint to be an excellent combination of paint products to create forms and lines that capture the fluidity and colour of the natural environment.My work can be viewed online at www.canvasgallery.ca and at koymangalleries.com.” – Ian Varney
