Congratulations to Rory MacDonald, AFCA, for being awarded 2nd place at the 2021 Nanaimo Fine Art Show for his excellent painting "Emergence"
"Emergence" by Rory MacDonald, AFCA
"My paintings are a reflection of my experiences of the natural world. I believe that we are very much a part of that world and that when we connect to nature we see how we fit into the grand scheme of things, with both the warts and the beauty. I search for a way to express myself in my work, which doesn’t always result in a faithful rendition of the natural state, but a balance of my energies as well. I trust the viewer will have some memories of their own, of being in a similar place and time, and hope my work will awaken within them the awe of being in nature as well.
