Sunday's Painting A Day Series: Trevor Van Den Eijnden

Hello and Welcome to the second painting from our "Painting A Day Series" here at Argyle Fine Art. Today, we'd like to share this amazing work by Trevor Van Den Eijnden, which was part of a larger series a few years back. 

This work is called "Burning Lands: TV". It is a combination of paint, photo transfer and metal leaf on canvas. It measures 16" x 16" and is $650.

For some reason this work still remains!  It's one of our favourite and doesn't get seen as much at the gallery. Many people have come to know Trevor for his luminescent mixed media works of crows.

Just imagine...most of us will live to see the day when the TV will be a thing of the past. This painting has a very special, nostalgic feeling. In person, this piece glows and is a strong work all on it's own. It would be perfect for someone who loves vintage inspired pieces or a business who works with technology.

Trevor was born in Pictou County- it seems lately there are so many  talented artists coming from that part of the province of Nova Scotia. Although Trevor now lives in British Columbia, he makes a trip to home and the gallery each summer. We are planning on having a new body of work by Trevor in June. Stay tuned for more information on that soon!
