John Lennard - ‘Colour & Light - The Living Landscape’

John Lennard was born in Barrie, Ontario, later moved to the Toronto area and now resides in the Haliburton Highlands. He displayed a keen interest in art from an early age and after graduating from Leaside High School studied art at the Ontario College of Art and the Art Students League of New York. He has exhibited his work internationally for many years and is represented in numerous collections in Canada and abroad. For over thirty years the Canadian landscape has been a constant inspiration for his oil paintings. The work reflects a direct response to nature and the environment and follows the seasons with a rich treatment, which evokes the remembered sensations of place and time. The bold colours and strong design emphasize light, shadow and pattern, which allow the viewer to enter nature with a sensitized eye.He is a member of various art organizations and is a listed artist in the publications, "A Dictionary of Canadian Artists and Artists in Canada".
