Artist: Kym Greeley and the New Newfoundland Painting

Longing to paint the landscape she knew, [Greeley] turned to the Internet for source material, but found very little that reflected her idea of this place. Newfoundland, for her, was not a red-haired child running through a soft field. It was not a brightly coloured home perched on a quiet harbour. For Greeley, her memory of Newfoundland’s landscape was dominated by its monotonous main artery, the Trans-Canada, Route 1, experienced through a car window on the way from one place to another.
