It is the vigour of province-by-province artistic development that gives contemporary fine art its character, and creates a path for the future of art production. Art history is as well being made. Social media has also changed the intention of contemporary fine art, and has brought fine art production to the viewer with immediate stride.
Important to fine art production is the way works of fine art are exhibited, as with this installation, under excellent conditions at Regina Centre Crossing. To tour throughout Regina Centre Crossing is to be impressed by the feeling of the unfolding of the future of contemporary fine art.
The artists in this installation have expended with modes in which to experiment with medium, content and style, and have created works of art that the viewer can revere, free of controversy or meaning, yet expressive with brushstrokes, colour and form. Each work is characterized with energetic implementation, large articulated brushstrokes, abstract and realist imagery, and fields of intense colour. Many works are large in scale, which lends monumentality to the works, intended to envelope the viewer with rhythmic fields of colour, consuming and impassioned variations of tone, and movement.
What prevails in this installation is that the artists’ mode of expression is distinct, and presents to the general public an accurate understanding of the direction contemporary fine art is leading to. Images are inspired from nature, prevailing of the human form, and the conception of flattened planes on canvases with reference to natural and representational imagery.
In all, as Canada continues to broaden and diversify as a nation, so too does artistic expression. It is the vision of the Artists of Scott Nicholson Fine Arts, a vision of skilled expression and elemental character, with works that reveal the many qualities of Canadian society. qualities that can be viewed, appreciated and critiqued, which lends to artistic vision and inspiration as the contemporaries of Canadian fine art.
