NEW PAINTINGS

Rise form artworks is the latest venture by canadian artist john ovcacik.  Known mostly for his surreal landscapes featuring minimalist farmhouses and outbuildings, he has recently taken his work in a bold new direction.  the straight lines and tightly rendered images have given way to larger brush strokes, bolder colours and a more whimsical approach to composition and design.

 

the new work combines elements from diverse traditions: the simplicity of primitive art forms, the visual texture of printmaking techniques, and the objective depiction of contemporary realism. reflecting a deep love and fascination for the natural world, these images combine reverence with a sense of humour.

inspired by his passion for fly fishing, it has quickly evolved to encompass a broad range of subject matter.

 

john's work can be found in numerous private and corporate collections, including those of bell canada, jetform corporation, merrill lynch canada and the royal canadian mint. he resides and works in chelsea quebec.

Fly portraits

my work as an artist and my passion for fly fishing inevitably resulted in some fishing-specific images. some of those efforts focused on the fly patterns that are tied by hand to suggest the insects and other prey that fish feed on.
