Roly Fenwick – 2015 UPwithARTist

Bio:

London, ON artist Roly Fenwick was born in 1932 in Owen Sound, ON. Fenwick taught painting and drawing at the University of Western Ontario from 1968-1989.  He is well known for his lush oil paintings that are inspired by the landscape of the Bruce Peninsula, which Fenwick refers to as his “ancestral bloodroots”.  Fenwick explains that his “interest is not in scenery but in probing to reveal the forces beneath the veneer”.   His paintings thoroughly reflect this interest in revealing the sources of nature and inner spirit of the Canadian landscape.

Statement:

“This negotiating with nature has become a visual collection of ‘internal places’; places I keep after leaving, places of necessary memories and places that fit the skin. There to make the call it has been a refuge from the self-conscious and a process of survival.”
