Gregory Hardy is a Canadian painter who primarily concentrates on prairie landscapes. His hobby farm near Meacham, Saskatchewan provides inspiration for his canvases.
Weather and the expectation of change are vivid elements in Hardy’s work, giving a sense of shifting movement to his signature clouds and open vistas. His paintings are in a solo exhibition at Wallace Galleries in Calgary through March 29.
Hardy uses thick paint, naturalistic colour, and gestural brushwork to convey the stark simplicity of the prairie landscape and the drama of its elements.
Hardy’s career spans four decades and countless exhibitions. As he reimagines the Canadian landscape, he captures fleeting weather patterns and the luminosity of the prairie sky.
