Janet Horne Cozens
My work explores the relationship between natural world and us, the viewers, or occupiers of this world, using colour, texture and shape. With influences from the Group of Seven, First Nations artists and my own background as a printmaker, I developed a style that reflects not only what the viewer expects to see in these landscapes, but also the hidden influences of people on these views through the unexpected use of man-made pigments.
As I explore various Ontario’s landscapes, I am attempting to show them not as representations of exact locations but as interpretations of the internal spirit of each place whether it is a lake, a forest, a waterfall or even a solitary tree. Each landscape is in essence, a portrait of a living earth.
