ARTIST: David Grieve

BIOGRAPHY: David Grieve has been painting with oils for most of his life. He was introduced to the medium at a young age while accompanying his mother to her studio. David attended the University of Guelph where he received the Micheal Scotchmere scholarship. He has been exhibiting his work for 16 years, and has developed a unique, distinctive style.David often finds himself lost while trying to navigate a route towards a destination. He frequently drives through the ever changing fields in Southern Ontario. He takes photos along the way and then uses these images to produce his paintings. With a multi-layered technique, he applies thick swaths of oil paint, creating a translation of these moments.

David has received scholarships and awards for his paintings, and has been involved in numerous group and solo exhibitions in commercial as well as public galleries across Canada and the U.S.A. David is represented by Natures Scene and currently exhibits in 17 galleries.

David lives surrounded by the fields in Brantford Ontario with his wife and three sons. They also spend time at the studio/cabin in North Kawartha

Forest Stream
by Mark Hobson
"The rain forests of the outer British Columbia coast are a wonderful tangle of abstract shapes created by moss-covered cedars, rotting logs and exuberant growth. The challenge is how to compose a piece that celebrates the feeling of this moody world within the confines of a rectangular canvas. I finally settled on a diagonal decaying log with a hint of warm light seeping through the background canopy, a quintessential west coast Spring scene."

Repurposed
by Gregg Johnson
"There are a ton of stories that this old bus could tell before it was repurposed into a parts and storage “shed.” Found on a bachelor’s farm near Dapp, it showed signs of its owner’s creativity, as in its new life it harbored nuts and bolts and washers and cogs and pulleys and machine parts of every description, all laid out in shelves and cupboards where seats used to be. There it was—-as unique a discovery as I have ever made—-nestled in amongst the trees and old tractors and farm implements, keeping its signature color remarkably well. I’m guessing that this bus was circa 1950’s."

Hanging in There, At Sunset
by Gregg Johnson
"The prairies east of Edmonton hold some of the most charming relics of the past. And this barn and its other outbuildings showed signs of craftsmanship and beauty. But as the wisest man once said, “There is a time and a Season for Everything.” And the season of usefulness for this barn is now pretty well gone—-except to delight photographers, artists and lovers of abandoned buildings. For me it is always a pleasure to stumble on a find like this one situated in Lamont County, home to many a rustic treasure. "
