Abstract Artists in Manitoba

Canadian abstract artists are traditionally painters, drawers, sculptors and photographers, but can also include other mediums like jewelry, printmaking, film, textiles ceramics and more. Artists in Canada views abstract as nonobjective art that depicts real forms in a simplified or rather reduced way - keeping only an allusion of the original natural subject.


Craig Deslandes

 

Abstract, Painter

Craig Deslandes, Abstract Artist based in Winnipeg, Canada — but I'll take any opportunity to travel!

After half a decade of work I discovered a new visual language created entirely by myself in search of expression in a pure art. As many painters do I experimented and abstract art became the process trying to deliver both extraordinary original and visually impressive canvasses.

My work has evolved from visual representation of the world to painting as a bearer of spiritual dimensions and transcendental experiences.

Experimenting with new techniques, I abandoned the brush and easel with the use of larger canvases, bounteous quantities of paint developing my own methods of artistic expression.

My personal expression is similar to the concept of action painting which involves the action of painting, and the gestures of the artistic process. I begin by moving the canvas to the floor, and applying paint with various techniques of pouring, and dripping onto the canvases with the hand or palette knife. This method creates art that comes to life deliberated by the complex process of layered paining and meaning so the results are canvases painted and readable from all directions.
