John Visser's passion for painting landscapes stems from a simple desire to evoke the sense of serenity and beauty of nature. Rural and wild places are cherished as they induce a meditative calm, a removal from the distractions of everyday life. His paintings capture the unfolding drama of light and shadow in combination with the graphic, abstract qualities the landscape can possess; the timeless, enduring, yet ever changing qualities of the land. "I attempt to express my sense of wonder at how changing light can transform the seemingly mundane into the extraordinary. I try to look past or through the details to the simple basic shapes and spaces and how they interact. This hopefully leads to interesting and harmonious compositions.” Based in Toronto, Visser mainly uses photography to capture images from his trips around Ontario and the rest of Canada. These images spark the process and act as a jumping off point for the painting and help jog visual memory. This particular painting was inspired by a fall drive through the countryside around Caledon, Ontario.
