Over long periods of time, sometimes years, he continuously returns to one space, spending time drawing, painting and working on copper. This structured repetition creates an engaged interaction with his subject, resulting in a layered conversation that exposes a subtle relationship with the landscape.
His current project explores his adopted home of Salmon Arm, British Columbia. Here, he is investigating the language of landscape painting. In particular, its role in modern society and how it can be applied when expressing one’s experience of place.
The results of his current project will be exhibited in spring of 2021. Follow QG&W and Brett Mallon’s social media to see how planning and progress are coming along.
