Biography

ARTIST'S STATEMENT
"My paintings are very personal responses to what I choose to look at. Often, what I choose to look at are landscapes that have been touched by human hands over the millennia.
Certain rather inexplicable, and perhaps mysterious, emotions are aroused by these buildings, gardens and countrysides where people have walked. Many writers have reflected on the notion of collecting emotional remembrances sparked by sights, sounds, and smells. I create works of art that reflect my love of travel, and the nostalgias I've collected, evoked by the different places I've lived in and visited over many years.
Sometimes, when I open the back door of my studio in Ottawa, the smell of the air reminds me of an autumn day in Northern Greece. Sometimes the nostalgia is more intangible: a fragment of landscape I glimpse from a train window brings on a sudden feeling of recognition. These visceral responses are what I want to evoke on canvas." L.Cass, 1997.
