On Saturday June 25th we had a wonderful turn out for the David Grieve “Meet the Artist” and exhibit opening. Many people had a chance to meet David and discuss his inspirations.
David lives surrounded by the fields in Brantford Ontario with his wife and three sons. They also spend time at the studio/cabin in North Kawartha.
David Grieve has been painting with oils for most of his life. He was introduced to the medium at a young age while accompanying his mother to her studio. David attended the university of Guelph where he received the Micheal Scotchmere scholarship. He has been exhibiting his work for 16 years, and has developed a unique, distinctive style.
David often finds himself lost while trying to navigate a route towards a destination. He frequently drives through the everchanging fields in Southern Ontario. He takes photos along the way and then uses these images to produce his paintings. With a multi-layered technique, he applies thick swaths of oil paint, creating a translation of these moments.
David Grieve “For Shore” exhibit continues until July 29th.
