New Paintings from Rod Charlesworth in Victoria

Rod’s sensitivity for capturing the vast Canadian landscape is unparalleled. His work, whether bold landscapes or whimsical images of children at play, is collected worldwide, and he is more committed than ever to painting images that have a strong Canadian cultural influence.

What initially inspired me to paint was how we all see the world differently. I wanted to strike my own visual language that could be used to portray the Canadian landscape in all of its rugged subtleties.” -Rod Charlesworth

In the concept sketches, we see the genesis of her vision—clusters of peonies rendered in loose, confident strokes. These initial marks are the seeds from which the full bloom of the diptych would grow.
