As fall approaches the weather turns cooler and nature’s colours shift, reminding us to reflect on autumn’s beauty.
The show, titled The World of Nature – Two Perspectives, features photographer Harold K. Whyte and painter Kai-Liis McInnes. The artists’ distinct styles intertwine with an emphasis on landscapes and wildlife. The pieces depict a striking contrast between the realism of photography and the whimsical potential of watercolour.
McInnes’ paintings range from the nearly realistic to the colorful and whimsical. She paints in watercolour, often combining other media such as acrylic inks, pencils or techniques such as print making and stenciling.
Whyte’s photographs reveal his love for nature which he captures in dramatic and meaningful ways. With a career in photography spanning over five decades, Whyte appreciates the advancements of today’s technology by using digital technology to subtly enhance the beauty of landscapes, flowers and wildlife.
“My wish, using photography, is to help the viewer become part of the spirit of the scene, with the correct use of light setting the final mood. My eye and camera become one to capture the essence of the moment, which in nature can be extremely fleeting,” says Whyte.
