Sam Wolfe Connelly

The play of light against dark is a well-worn tool of the artist, and Sam Wolfe Connelly uses it well, but surprisingly, he also seems to be applying this method to his sense of mood. I can’t help but feel a sense of lightness in even the darkest of his works.

Be sure to check out his blog as well, he has a lot of great in-process images there.

It’s that time of year again! If you are in Toronto, near Toronto, or can get to Toronto this weekend, it’s time for another excursion down to Nathan Phillips Square for the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. This is one of my favourite art events of the year, and a great chance to see works from hundreds of amazing artists, like Stephen Noble, whose painting is pictured above. Hope to see you there!
