New work by Oxanna Adams and Barbara Shaw
Oxanna Adams and Barbara Shaw are Guelph artists. Their friendship and artistic collaboration grew from a mutual passion for northern landscapes. Both artists were inspired by their travels to places such as Iceland, Sweden, and the Yukon. Oxanna uses shape, colour and value to create abstract panels that convey a strong sense of place. She applies multiple layers of oil paint mixed with cold wax medium to evoke a landscape that stirs the soul and lifts the heart. From large acrylic paintings reflecting dramatic vistas to smaller detailed watercolours, Barbara’s art captures the beauty of these northern regions. The music of the
land can be imagined as each painting pulls the viewer closer. Although very different in style and technique, both Oxanna and Barbara’s art radiate an indelible passion for the North.
