We’re drawn to wide-open spaces and expansive views, and landscape paintings connect us to these places. The concept of abstract landscape allows me incredible artistic freedom and yet grounds the work in visual experience. – Debra Krakow

Description and artist statement for Susan Oomen’s upcoming exhibit of oil paintings.
Insouciant and irreverent, IMAMess… reimagines the discarded and reveals the imaginative playfulness of an artist’s mind. Broken skateboards often serve as a launching off point for reveries on broken dreams and broken promises, always presented with humour and intelligence.
Working in a broad range of mediums and subjects, artist, illustrator and graphic designer Vadim Vaskovsky takes inspiration from various locales and themes, including his adopted home in Prince Edward County. His gifted use of colour captures the uniqueness of light on the landscape and ignites the imagination in reminiscence.
Originally from the Kingston region, Susan Oomen now lives and works in the aptly named hamlet of Utopia, Ontario. An avid paddler, as well as painter, Oomen creates iconic works to capture the Canadian spirit of being out on the water in summer or looking out windows onto snow covered landscapes in winter. Her canvases immortalize the play of light on water and the serene tranquility of a winter’s day, creating an escape from the everyday.
