Tall and elegant, a cypress cedar, the iconic tree that dots the countryside in Tuscany stands in the center of this painting by Sylvain Louis-Seize. The Montreal born artist is known for his imaginative use of bold colours and abstracted form. This piece is one of a series that captures the Italian landscape as sunlight floods the fields. The colour palette is vivid; the sky on fire with yellow and orange; the sky a hint of white, deep blue and turquoise, the land in rich browns and orange—a stream is luminous in white.
“I try to leave a lot for the viewer to interpret in their own way…” Sylvain Louis-Seize
His artworks including large scale commissions are held in private and corporate collections in the UK, the US, Canada, and Europe. A catalogue "Sylvain Louis-Seize, "Resolution" (2019) is available.
