Mark Berens Press Release FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE BUCKHORN, CANADA, June 17, 2018/- Gallery On The Lake is proud to present ‘Northern Soul’ featuring a collection of new works by Canadian artist Mark Berens with an Opening Reception and Meet the Artist event on June 30, from 1-4pm. The exhibit continues to July 27 in the main exhibit rotunda. Berens’ paintings offer a dynamic interpretation of Canadian landscapes, particularly those found along the shores of Georgian Bay and Algonquin Park. Through his skillful use of manipulating oil paint colours, his gestures are both bold and captivating, offering a unique take on windswept trees, endless waters and escarpment forests. Berens spent his childhood enamored with art and the smell of oil paints thanks to his grandparents who were both artists; he still recalls fond memories of the oily scent of his Grandmother’s studio space. An inspirational trip to Whistler instantly reconnected Berens with the outside world, and an inevitable passion to paint the nature surrounding him. He instantly began a new artistic journey - representing landscapes through oil paint. Since this poignant trip, Berens has traveled to many parts of Canada in search of picturesque scenes that would in turn inspire new landscape pieces. The surface quality of his landscapes is thick, creamy, and rich in the palette of nature’s liveliness. Berens is particularly noted for his ability to capture depth and light through textured dabs of a well-calculated colour palette. Through closer inspection, the quality of the paint reveals itself in a somewhat abstract manner, creating a unique bilateral dynamic for viewing. Mark Berens is a two time winner of the Best in Show award at the McMichael Gallery’s Autumn Art Show, for his uniquely textured style of painting the Northern Landscape. Berens currently paints from his home on Georgian Bay in Ontario. His work can be found in private collections as well as commercial galleries across North America. Gallery On The Lake is the largest retail Gallery in Canada located on a beautiful lakefront setting and offers one of the most extensive collections of artwork by some of Canada’s leading and emerging artists.
