Is it a coincidence that the work of Nova Scotia’s Barbara Gibson appears to be heavily inspired by the colours and textures of the ocean? We think not.
‘First Light’ by Barbara Gibson
Experimenting with pattern, rhythm, translucency, transparency, layers and fluidity, Barbara enjoys playing with the paint and revelling in the spontaneity of her process until that magical moment of completion, when the final result always proves to be a surprise.
‘Beach Glass’ by Barbara Gibson
We love the energy of Barbara’s work and are delighted to welcome her to the Herringbone family!
Palette knife + paint = perfection. Jane Boyd wields her favourite tool like a magician, turning ordinary landscapes and waterscapes into impressionist gems of colour, texture and form.
‘Hues of Lake Huron’ by Jane Boyd
Happily getting “lost in the moment,” Jane simplifies her subject matter as a way of exploring the essence of what she’s seeing and of conveying that essence to the viewer.
‘Fall Fantasy’ by Jane Boyd
Jane’s award-winning work has appeared in countless international exhibitions and features in numerous private collections and we couldn’t be happier to offer some of her incredible paintings right here at Herringbone.
For more than thirty-five years, Jennifer Pazienza has been having an “old-fashioned affair with oil paint” – and what an affair it continues to be. With a doctorate in art education in her back pocket, Jenn keeps racking up awards and accolades from her many international exhibitions, all from her home (and envy-inducing studio) in rural New Brunswick.
‘Abbondante’ by Jennifer Pazienza
As a “student of the ephemeral,” Jenn paints to remember and understand and help us, her lucky viewers, reflect on our own place in the world.
‘Dal Segno’ by Jennifer Pazienza
We are delighted to welcome Jenn to the Herringbone family and can’t wait to see what she produces next.
“Painting,” writes Lois Griffiths, “is a balancing act between opposite ideas – direct observation and intuition, control and spontaneity, even between the literal and figurative.”
‘Only’ by Lois Griffiths
It’s imperative for a painter to always be pushing the limits and trying new things, she believes, citing “a continuous desire to progress” as a hugely motivating factor in her work.
‘Soon’ by Lois Griffiths
We believe that Lois’ beautiful, attention-grabbing work more than meets her goal of reaching beyond the canvas to “engage the viewer to connect and share a moment” and are delighted to offer some of her work here at Herringbone.
