Verne Busby | Sweep to the West

14 January - 3 February 2023
Verne Busby has lived and worked most of his life in Edmonton, Alberta.  His most recent landscape works are part of a series titled "The High-Up Landscapes" -- born of Busby's inimitable perspective from the experience of flight at an altitude of 1,000 feet over picturesque swaths of central Alberta. 

The work is essentially a modern interpretation of landscape painting through an aerial perspective.  Central Alberta's varying geography allows Busby to transition fluidly between complete abstraction and more representational work.  His gift to the viewer  is a thoroughly distinct perspective on a familiar, beloved landscape.
