Duncan de Kergommeaux

BIRTH PLACE Premier, British Columbia

Ottawa-based artist Duncan de Kergommeaux offers us a painting with a view in Lake Huron 19-06-87. de Kergommeaux’s landscapes feature wide open spaces where vibrant colour and prominent horizon lines are key and their painterly nature harkens back to his decades long exploration of abstraction. This work is among a number of Lake Huron landscapes deKergommeaux completed while working in London, Ontario in the 1980s.

A landscape portraits a waterfront scene. A shore, of vegetation and sand, is present on foreground. The body of water occupies the second plan, painted with two distinctive blues, light and dark, vertically separating the lake in two. In the background, the light blue sky presents a contrasting and defined pinkish vertical line, crossing the composition from left to right.
