Bev Rodin, CSPWC

Professional Canadian Artist/ artiste Canadienne professionnelle

Dr. Bev Rodin has been a lifeguard, a fashion model, a waitress, a Brownie leader and a chamber choir singer. Bev is a full time Canadian artist who has lived from coast to coast, from Vancouver to the northern St Lawrence River, in small Ontario mining communities and has summered as a child on a prairie farm.

She has taught two and three-dimensional design, colour theory, space planning, drawing, watercolour and acrylic painting to students of all ages, served on conservation boards and written on the subject of connections between art and science.

With her husband, her many adventures have included hiking into Havasu canyon, whitewater canoeing down the Magnetawan River and designing a waterfront summer home. Bev is a proud mother, grandmother and wife. She shares her love of music with her family, finding time for piano, guitar, song and dance.

Bev is a full-time artist who continually transforms and develops her elegant accomplished paintings. A great team of galleries market Bev’s work. Her paintings are collected publicly and privately worldwide and have been juried into prestigious Canadian and international art exhibitions. Bev Rodin is interested in atmospheric light, transparency, movement and moments in time. Internationally collected, each original archival painting on canvas combines large gestural brushwork, sumi-e, traditional and contemporary painting techniques and multiple glazes. In essence, Bev’s art reveals the poetic and the beautiful in the natural phenomena that surround her life. She is internationally known for: Forest Light Series, Shoreline Series and City & Country Gardens. Each original archival painting is finished on the edges and ready to hang unframed.

Artist Statement / Dèclaration d’artiste

Good art like music plays forever and I endeavour to create imaginative, spiritual and individual work that does not lose its potency over time. I believe the space between the brushstrokes is where intuition liberates the intellect. Both are essential. My predominantly medium and large-scale paintings in acrylic medium on canvas, explore unusual lighting, transparency, abstraction, universality, movement, colour and connections between them. These simple notions provide both the grand gestures and the details of my work. I am also interested in the universal human responses and relationships to natural landscapes, water and the beauty of natural geometries. I am well known for three dominant themes or series: Forest Light, Shorelines and Peonies/Botanicals. Other works include internationally award winning watercolours and plein air small works.

Mes grandes peintures étudent la lumière exceptionale, la couleur, le mouvement, les moments universeles, les dessins abstracte and leurs rapport avec les paysages naturel, de l’eaux and la beauté esthétique. Mes thèmes en vogue sont des Forêts & du Lumière, des Rivages et Les Jardins de ville et du campagne.
