Forest Through the Trees
From the artist: "I often add in little objects in my paintings, almost like Easter eggs. I think that people miss these, so it's always worth taking a second look just in case. There’s a little portage sign in the distance in Forest Through the Trees, and a couple of crushed empty beer cans in Rainy Daze and Delays. The cans are actually a representation of my favourite beer, Wellington SPA from my hometown of Guelph".
Gausden's interactive landscapes and intimate figurative works are inspired by social media content and influenced by photographic techniques. Gausden's works have smooth surfaces with impasto elements and white sides, the canvases are ready to hang framed or unframed.
