About the Artist: Jay Bigam
Jay is a self-taught artist who paints abstract landscapes, skyscapes and spacescapes. Known for his use of colour and movement, his paintings are a reflection of his love of nature and science.
“My work is inspired by the landscape, sky, water and ice of a place, and especially of my home, Alberta. I try to capture the feeling and not a literal representation. I am particularly inspired by the sunset. The grand light at the end of the day, reflecting upon clouds, the landscape and the falling off to the deep indigo of the night sky. We are all familiar with the saying, “In Alberta, if you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes.” I use colour and movement to try to capture the sense of change we see on a daily and even minute by minute basis, whether it be the slow movement of a glacier, a violent summer storm or a lingering summer sunset.”
