Celebrated Canadian Visual Artist Brandy Saturley – Painter of Canadianisms
Whether ‘Canadian POP Art’ or ‘contemporary realism’, Canadian Visual Artist Brandy Saturley has become known as the painter of ‘Canadianisms’. These aren’t your typical ‘Canadianisms’ like beer and hockey, although you can find these symbols in her paintings, rather Saturley renders symbolic narratives on the canvas influenced by her travels, photography and writing.
“I don’t paint landscapes, portraits or still-life, I am telling stories using iconic figures, landscapes, and compositions. I am an explorer, and I am currently exploring the Canadian consciousness.”
Symbolic Paintings inspired by Canada. Here you will find a small group of original paintings created by award-winning Canadian Visual Artist Brandy Saturley. These symbolic paintings rendered using the finest acrylic paints, the world’s most versatile medium. Saturley utilizes many techniques to create the effect she is seeking, her process is anchored in the Old Masters’ technique of creating a grisaille under-painting ( a black,white and grey version of the painting to which colour glazes will be applied) Saturley also employs the use of coloured grounds, under-painting the entire canvas in a specific colour which will show through in certain areas of the painting. Over the years Saturley has also incorporated pouring of paint, creation of acrylic skins, collage, and subtractive effects using scratching and taping to remove paint from desired areas of the painting. She has created paintings on linen and cotton canvas, on paper, wood panel, wood veneer and even rubber hockey pucks. Time and time again Saturley has returned to traditional painting on canvas. Her obsession with mastering acrylics and the figurative painting keeps propelling her work in new directions.
Saturley creates original fine art and commissioned artworks. Art licensing and financing options are also available.
