Carrot Gallery Opening Reception

Featured Artist: Jay Bigam

Jay is a self-taught artist who paints modern impressionist landscapes and skyscapes, with a special emphasis on severe weather in Alberta. Bigam’s exhibition, Elements, is a collection of pieces produced using oil paints, solvents, sawdust, metallic spray paint, and fire. The process involves multiple layering of these materials and slowly building up colour and texture by literally lighting the piece on fire (carefully). Burning different solvents produce different effects: some act as a fixative, some as a flow enhancer and some as colour (soot).
