"Old Boat Ganges Harbour"
Ken Faulks, "Old Boat Ganges Harbour," oil on panel, 11" x14".
Sensational Victoria based artist Ken Faulks unveils his much anticipated collection of new paintings at West End Gallery. Employing the methods and media popular with the Group of Seven, oil paint on small wood panels, Ken takes to painting outside "en plein air", like no other artist; back in the studio he expertly renders these smaller "plein air" paintings into larger works on canvas. Lush brushstrokes, a bold palette and a keen compositional sense have become synonymous with his style. Grand skies, log strewn beaches and other familiar landscapes from around southern Vancouver Island have delighted and excited both new and established collectors.
Join us for the opening reception Saturday May 10th with artist in attendance from 1pm to 4pm.
