    John Page is showcasing four of his larger landscape themed Oil on Canvas works from July 22 to September 30, 2014.  

      Artist Biography John Page I was born and raised in the west-end of Toronto. We were a family of three children, my two sisters, and myself. When my sisters reached high school, they had already established themselves in the family as accomplished artists and enrolled in Commercial Art programs at school. I did not really try to discover whether I had any talent as an artist until I was 17. I was not happy with going to a technical school at the time and began to draw to see whether or not I could do it. My sisters thought that I did have some capabilities and encouraged me to switch to Commercial Art. Studying Art for me, especially Art History was great. I loved the history and the technicality of classical painting. After four years of Commercial Art, however, I decided that producing commercial style painting on a daily basis was not for me. It was at this point that I had an opportunity to get into drafting which I did for several years. When I saw that computer technology was threatening the drawing table I began to study computer technology and ultimately became a programmer. During these years I kept my interest for art alive by painting periodically and giving the paintings away to family and friends. My younger sister however was seriously pursuing a career in Art, displaying her work at local galleries, and when we would talk about it she would ultimately encourage me to paint. After ignoring my sister’s words of encouragement for years, I finally decided to give it a try. However, my initial experiments were a disaster because while I could draw, I had no experience painting with oils and it had been a long time since I had tried watercolours. I did, however, settle on watercolours and created a few pieces that my friends told me were good. After creating a number of pieces and selling them in galleries, I began to see the limitations of watercolour, relative to what I wanted to accomplish. I then switched to oils and after fumbling through a few pieces I began to appreciate what could be done with oils. Oils gave me the degree of exactness and contrast that pacified my eye and challenged my ability to develop the needed technique for a given piece.   Today, I tend to describe myself as a generalist in that I enjoy painting the major disciplines; portraits, still – life and landscapes. Looking back on my body of work up to this moment, the majority of my work has been landscapes. Landscapes have a great appeal to me because of my love for the natural world. Nature, in all its wonder, is an infinite source of inspiration. When choosing subjects, panoramic views with the mountains in the background and a lake in the foreground ha little appeal to me. Panoramic, from my perspective keep the viewer at a distance. My intent, as a painter, is to give the viewer a more intimate look at nature. Ideally I try to put the viewer into the scene and point out a vignette of the natural world that they may have passed by without really noticing. A much as I enjoy painting landscapes, however, I am also driven to experiment periodically with the other classical disciplines of portrait, still – life and nudes. From the perspective of a painter, rendering skin has an allure all its own. Catching that elusive expression of feeling is a great challenge with equally great rewards. So too are the rewards in the technicality of rendering glass, metal, cloth and other materials. The challenge of convincing the viewer that they are looking at something that has depth, texture, transparency etc. is simply a lot of fun. To enjoy the technicality of painting is to constantly push oneself toward the illusion of perfection.   Artist CV Born: Toronto, Ontario Membership: Elected Member of “The Society of Canadian Artists” Member of the Central Ontario Art Association Juried Shows:  Society of Canadian Artists, International Artist, GOR Gallery, (Kitchener), Guelph Art, (Guelph), Barber Gallery, (Guelph), IMA, (Toronto), Gallery Shows, (Solo):  KOR Gallery, (Kitchener), Kaleidescope Restaurant, (Guelph), Barber Gallery, (Guelph) Featured: Rogers Local Cable, Guelph, First Local, Rogers Cable, (Morning Show), Guelph Mercury Newspaper John Page is relatively new to the art scene, having started to paint in mid-life.  Originally John had studied commercial art but had decided that fine art was the forté that gave him the most satisfaction.  After experimenting with other mediums, John settled on ‘oil on canvas’ as the medium that satisfied his eye. John lived in a rural area for a number of years and derived the majority of his wor4k from that experience.  While being known for his landscapes, John also believes in practicing the other classical disciplines of still–life, portraiture, and nudes.  Regarding his obvious love for painting, John stated; “Painting for me is a passion, and if a passion is consuming…let it devour me completely”

    “Harmony at Petrie Island” 1. My ear is drawn to the harmonious calls of frogs and birds in their beautiful surroundings at Petrie Island. The simultaneous and often competing songs leave me looking both skyward and to the water. I find these noises relaxing and peaceful, as I associate the harmony of sound with the beautiful sights. My eye is drawn to bright leaves, which hit by sunlight, dance on the water. I admire radiant greens, water reflections, puddles of rain on lily pads, and ripples on the violet-grey water; - harmony in colour. 2. 3. There is harmony in the organic shapes of a turtle shell or a lily pad, as I notice similar shapes repeating in nature on a larger scale. To paint nature is to take time to appreciate and notice much; – repeating shapes, rhythm and pattern. 4. 5. Exploring colouristically the drama in the patterns, in the traditional medium of oil, I take a macroscopic view and strive for a strong tactile quality, building up layers of paint to suggest the various harmonies in nature. 6. 7.
