Country Connections: David Greaves & Neil Olorenshaw
July 8, 2020 @ 11:00 am - August 2, 2020 @ 4:00 pm
Despite a reverence for old rural buildings, David’s paintings also reflect landscapes, seascapes & floral. A subtle use of palette and light infuses David’s work with a serene and inviting ambience. We bring you a gorgeous selection of paintings that will keep you local and take you to England and Ireland.
David Greaves was born in Yorkshire, England. He attended Art School where he graduated in graphic design. After arriving in Canada, David worked in several commercial art studios before opening his own design firm. Although basically a self-taught watercolourist, David’s work was influenced by England’s John Yardley and the late John Blockley.
Our township is full of beautiful trees, and Neil reclaims a part of them in every piece of his work. These wood pieces were destined for the fireplace. A little attention and look what comes out. Nature hides much of its beauty but, with careful treatment, the intrinsic patterns, colours and textures in wood can be exposed for our enjoyment. Neil’s aim is to showcase the intrinsic beauty of wood, selecting wood from local sawmills, prepare it so as to display its internal beauty, suitably mount it and finish it with all natural products. No colouring or other artificial materials are used.
