Earth and Water: A Conversation on Edge with artists Terrill Welch and Elena Maslova-Levin

Opening the season at the Terrill Welch Gallery is a two artist international exhibition, April 13 — May 13, 2018 on Mayne Island in British Columbia, Canada.

Earth & Water: A Conversation on Edge with Terrill Welch and Elena Maslova-Levin

Sixteen landscapes. A multitude of conversations.

The timeless conversation between Earth and Water, shaping the edges of continents and islands we inhabit.

The conversation between the observer and the observed, shaping our visible reality.

And between the artist and nature, from which paintings emerge and invite the spectator to take part in the conversation.

And finally, the conversation between artists, in words and in paintings — an ongoing exchange of insights and impressions, challenges and breakthroughs.

Preview all sixteen paintings and learn more about the artists and the show HERE.

Also, a short video of the show is now available for your viewing pleasure.

On Friday, April 13th Elena Maslova-Levin and Terrill Welch will do a live video chat from the Art of Terrill Welch Facebook Page at 11:00 am PDT to open the show.

Northern California Contemporary Landscape Oil Paintings

Seven new landscape oil paintings of northern California by Canadian Contemporary artist Terrill Welch become available for purchase today. Using her plein air and photography sketches as well as her memory, these works are inspired from Terrill’s slow travel down and up the coast this spring.

The dynamic movement of the sea, sky and light at Arena Lighthouse in northern California mesmerizes and inspires.

Knowing what is coming and yet unable to decide whether to stay or to move forward or back from the surf as it builds its strength before coming ashore again. This is the first of three related northern California surf paintings.

A vibration followed by the hard pressure of full impact. We know that the sea will wear at the stone repeatedly until it gives but in this moment of connecting we are fooled.

There is a full-exhale as the surf releases all that it holds before gathering itself to return again. Moisture appears in small droplets on our bare skin. Only then is there an audible sigh. This is the third of three related paintings of the northern California surf.

The scent in the air changes rapidly as the warm light and cool shadows are rearranged overhead. New leaves and blades of grass unfold and push forward. Knowingly or unknowingly we recognize this ordinary spring day with rolling thunderclouds.

Big fat fluffy clouds move swiftly across the early spring brilliant green of the Fremont Hills. The dark drama mirrored in the quarry lakes. A brief burst of rain did not reach the landscape until early evening.

The haze and atmosphere are warm and rich – almost buttery, even in early spring. There is a constant taste of chalk with a hint of salt on the air in this drought-ridden geography. It is a private view for the viewer alone to savour. The road denotes a connection to civilization that does not intrude on the landscape.
