Rebecca Last and Janet Read work in response to experienced landscapes and lakescapes. Rice Lake is a key theme in Last’s work while Lake Simcoe and Lake Ontario prompt Read’s work. Atmospheric paintings reveal the narrative spun by cloud and wind over water in varying degrees of representation and abstraction. Both artists have mined this territory over several years creating authentic lived responses to their chosen environments.
