Karel Doruyter at Madrona Gallery
His work captures the feeling of the rain forest. The combination of a masterful hand and highly textured canvases give an amazing illusion of depth to his compositions creating a window into another time. These timeless places represent a diverse range of themes often incorporating indigenous history, logging and the cycles of life.
This show will feature 12 new works from the artist ranging from the monumental "Coast Guard" , 36 x 90 to more intimate pieces such as "New Generations" 18x24.
This is Karel Doruyter's first solo exhibition in Victoria Since 2006. He is a signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and past president of the Island Illustrators Guild.
