Faculty: John Anderson

John Anderson,
John Anderson is an enthusiastic studio and on-location painter. His excitement about the language and the process of painting is infectious. John's first major influence was the work of Andrew Wyeth; later it was the Group of Seven and Tom Thomson. Zone and Sorolla figure into the equation in a significant way as well. His interest in the work of North American Impressionists such as Aldro Hibbard was followed by interest in contemporary plein air painters like David Curtis, Trevor Chamberlain, Kevin MacPherson and Richard Schmid. John's work is a blend of many of these painters, along with his own presentation of light and colour. His work focuses on strong compositions filled with the mood of the moment. Light is fleeting - its impact leaves a profound impression - learning to see that and capture it in paint is his passion. John is represented by Ethel Curry Gallery in Haliburton, Marlowe Gallery, Barrie, Double Doors Gallery in Anten Mills, Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts Gallery in Collingwood, and Riverside Gallery, London, UK.
