Steven Nederveen Awarded Commission for the Canadian Consulate in Iceland
As part of Canada's 150th Anniversary, Steven Nederveen has been awarded a commission by the Ambassador of Canada to Iceland to create a unique painting for the Canadian Embassy in Reykjavik, Iceland. In the commissioned painting, Nederveen uses the subject of an ocean wave as a metaphor for cultural exchange between Canadians and the Icelandic people. Titled "Ocean Crossing," the work references the passion for travel, unity, and nature shared between the peoples of our two nations.
Follow the journey of this painting over the next few weeks on Instagram (@bauxigallery) as we track the progress of the commission from creation in the artist's studio in Toronto to its presentation by Nederveen at its permanent home in the Canadian Embassy in Reykjavik.
Our congratulations to Steven Nederveen on this exceptional honour!
