Calgary Alberta Canadian Watercolour and Acrylic Artist: Joel Sinclair (cspwc, sca, asa) Fine Art and Photography
"I approach my work in a non-traditional manner as an exploration of flow, energy, texture and spirit. I am fascinated with the human aspect contained within painting and work specifically to avoid 'perfect' renderings by exaggerating strokes and colour to create a sense of energetic movement. I am not attempting to capture a perfect vision, but rather, the feeling, energy and timelessness of life's dance.

My work is rooted in my spirit and love of life, and my paintings are an expression of this ongoing relationship and an exploration of the never ending dance between the masculine and feminine. My main focus is to incorporate and capture the energy of this dynamic into the paintings themselves, and perhaps reveal a glimpse of the power of creation."
