SHIFTING LIGHT
Oil on Canvas by Allen Shugar

Artist's Statement

Colour, light, the cycles of nature (so extreme in our climate), the beauty of the human form: these are the subjects that inspire my paintings. Naturalistic representation has never much interested me. I take, rather, a transformative approach that seeks to capture a purely subjective experience, a state of mind, an evanescent thought. In this respect my work owes as much to musical and literary influences as it does to visual stimuli. My aim is to suggest the extraordinary that lies just beneath the surface of the ordinary.

Artist's Biography

Allen Shugar is a Toronto-based artist. As a teenager he attended a Saturday-morning oil-painting class that introduced him to the medium which has remained his favorite ever since. He has also worked, at various times, as a graphic designer, an illustrator and a jeweller. He is currently the curator of Urban Gallery.
