Melanie day is a British born artist, now a Canadian citizen, living and working in her studio in Toronto. Inspired by her many travels, where landscape is life.
Her work approach is based on Sublime visual memory of nature, with intuitive execution. Her process begins with a direct painted horizon line, where sky meets land and water. With the use of oil paint on canvas Melanie creates many layers of glazes, which are then blended into each other wet on wet. This technique developed with her studies of the old masters use of glazing. This technique produces a very soft ethereal moody effect of light, dark and color.
Her intention is to produce a universal abstract landscape, where the viewer can experience there own personal recognition. Finding a sense of peace and calm
Melanie’s work has been featured in several design TV shows, and magazines. Her work is also part of several private collections, and has been exhibited with galleries in Toronto, Vancouver, New York, Atlanta, and Mexico.
