The Power of Na­ture

Where Ottawa - - Hot Art -

Stormy, awe-in­spir­ing, and evoca­tive, Stephen Hutch­ings’ land­scape paint­ings are more than what they seem. Lay­ers of char­coal and paint give char­ac­ter to these im­ages of craggy cliffs, dense forests, omi­nous rain­storms, misty rivers, and rays of light break­ing through dark clouds. They are a re­minder that life car­ries on around and af­ter us, and that the nat­u­ral world needs no help from hu­mankind to sur­vive. On dis­play at Ga­lerie St. Lau­rent + Hill un­til Septem­ber 13. (p. 37)
