Elizabeth McQueen has been a painter, printmaker, photographer and arts educator for over forty years. Whether capturing reflections on the journey to her northern studio, southwest of North Bay or responding to seasons passing around her 'winter retreat' in Dundas Ontario, her painterly work has always been about the bones of the land.
Sometimes, man's interface with nature - as steel cuts through rock passes - provides the underpinnings of her work. At other moments, it is the energy of ever-changing light in skies and water that bring form to her emotionally charged strokes on canvas.
In most recent works, she skates the edges in a style that might best be described as abstract realism. That they are landscape is unmistakable but there is so much more expressive depth that one begins to realize that perhaps inner topographies are also finding their way to the surface.
McQueen's work is inevitably about spirit, wonder, and love for this magnificent land. Moments in time and light are captured and then reframed as meditations... sometimes tumultuous...sometimes serene.. but always with an eye on the horizon and what might next be revealed.
