Maritime-born artist Brad Woodfin possesses an uncanny ability to capture the essential spirit beyond exquisitely executed forms of fauna. His skillful use of chiaroscuro elevates the richness and depth of the images he crates. Woodfin attributes his revelation in the use of light and shadow to a scene from the 1988 film ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’. As is the case with photographs of oil-based media in particular, the nuances of the paintings’ surface are not done justice by the camera and rather provide a general idea. Like all artworks, these paintings are at their very best when viewed in person. Woodfin resides in Montreal, QC.
