Features From My Visit to: The Toledo Museum of Art - #18

TMA (Toledo Museum of Art) is one of my favorite places in Toledo, Ohio.  I first visited this beautiful museum when I was in high school in Canada.  I grew up in the Windsor area and I was privileged to go to a high school with an advanced art program.  We actually visited the TMA twice throughout my high school career.  I had no idea when I was a teenager that I would actually marry an American and then settle in the Toledo area!  I now visit my favorite museum once a year.

I will be featuring a few pieces from the TMA each month.

(Oil on 15 Panels, 2013)
By James Lavadour (American, Walla Walla Tribe, born 1951)

James Lavadour lives and works in the state of Oregon on the "Umatilla Reservation".  He is a self-taught artist and has been inspired by Abstract Expressionism.  His unique approach is to work on many panels at a time - up to 100!
You will notice how different a painting looks when it is isolated away from the group of panels.  The last three pictures above are details - cropped from the first whole picture.  I much prefer it as a compilation.

This amazing artwork is best described by the artist himself: "I use the horizon of landscape, middle ground, and foreground because they are what I know from years of hiking and observation of the land around me.  Everything that is in the land is in me.  There are rivers and mountains in paint.  A simple brush stroke is the universal undulating flow, always in motion and ever informative.  Painting is a structural record for time and space."

  1. That is really neat! Reminds me a bit of Monet and his series... but in a much larger scale.


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
