The Travellers: Facing North

Les Graff, "Approaching Evening Forms, Northern Alberta", oil, charcoal, pastel on canvas, 44” x 56”
Graff says of his work: "Although landscape based, my concern is to create a more 'inner' world where specific ideas and forms mutate to finally represent remembered experiences and fragmented realities. Not certain as to what is 'real', I prefer to deal with the mutated 'crossover' of ideas - a layered territory that, yes, can be somewhat evasive but so satisfying to the artist wanting to deal with abstractions."

The Travellers is a loosely knit group of landscape, environmental artists and writers from different provinces and territories in Western Canada ~ Alberta, BC, and the Northwest Territories. They are united by their desire to represent their specific landscape and environmental interests as emotional experiences. These artists connect the viewer with Northern Canada through diverse points of view and expressive art mediums.
