The expansiveness and the quiet energy of coastal British Columbia are strongly evident in the imagery and the muted palette in these recent paintings by Dennis Greer. Using cold wax as a medium with oil paint, Greer has developed a personalized style that translates and interprets nature and iconography through saturated layers of transparent glazes. The art is a transformative interpretation rather than a literal rendering with the intention of evoking the emotion, memory, and essence of the West Coast landscape.
