Kurt Swinghammer Red Canoe No. 39, 2018.
Acrylic on canvas, 48×48 in. $5000.00 SOLD
The Red Canoe Series is an ongoing body of work in
which the composition remains unchanged, but the
colour relationships of the water are unique each time.
The initial inspiration was to find an image that related to
landscape painter Tom Thomson, who was the subject of a
song cycle that I wrote and recorded called Turpentine Wind.
One of my goals was to depict an iconic Canadian subject matter
in a contemporary manner.
