Through Tom’s Eyes
THROUGH TOM’S EYES, A DISCOVERY OF TRUTH, LIGHT AND COLOUR.
Through Tom’s Eyes marks the centennial of the mysterious death of artist Tom Thomson in Algonquin Park and celebrates the 150th birthday of Canada. Thomson shaped the way we see our land and through his paintings we feel a deep sense of place in Algonquin Park. Tom Thomson’s last spring was 1917. He died mysteriously in July of that year in Canoe Lake having completed 62 paintings in that spring alone. In the spirit of Tom, my goal over a year, was to paint 100 oil on birch panels searching out general locations where Tom had been. I wanted to get inside his head, see his landscapes 100 years later, and feel his paint brush as I painted. It is my wish that my work will speak with a truth and passion for the land, that you will see that Algonquin remains as Tom saw and felt it and you will be inspired to love, protect and preserve the wilderness of Algonquin Park for another 100 years and beyond.
