Elizabeth Lennie paints liquid landscapes, both summer and winter. Working from the anchor of a figurative image the intention is to capture the liminal quality of light. By placing the focus in or upon water Lennie looks to infuse the narrative with notions of self through shared memory. The work is primarily oil on canvas, with thinly layered washes, thicker impasto and, on occasion, wood panel, cold wax and graphite. The work is both abstract and figurative and explores the memory myth of the resonant Canadian seasons of summer and winter.
Recently the Canadian Hockey Hall of Fame acquired her painting 'Winter Solstice' for their collection. Lennie is a resident of Toronto and is collected in the U.S., U.K., Japan, Australia and the Netherlands.
