The CKG is showcasing this fascinating play of light, dark and form with Brad Woodfin's new work which dramatically captures the intensity of the chiaroscuro technique.
Perhaps best know locally in Calgary for the larger then life porcine (i.e. the big pig) painting in the top seating area at WURST Restaurant and Beer Hall in Mission, Montreal-based painter Brad Woodfin captures the essential spirit in exquisitely executed forms of fauna. Utilizing the structure and technique of 17th century Northern European still life painting (but with a far less serious tone), Woodfin’s animals emerge from darkness and into life/light and exude a small dollop of the artist’s characteristic anthropomorphism in his subjects.
“My work is about the lightness and darkness of life and a devotion to animal kind” - Brad Woodfin
