Fleeting Moments: A Painting Portfolio by Harry Stooshinoff

Harry Stooshinoff is a North Ontario-based artist who documents the landscape in a multitude of simple, gestural paintings, capturing fleeting moments and transient states of being. Harry’s landscape works are a breath of fresh air, one that feels very contemporary while owing something to the ideals of early impressionism.

I really appreciate the way Harry works. The artist is highly prolific, and seems to know just when to stop working on a painting and move onto the next one. The images never seem overworked -- rather, Harry gives the viewer just enough information to interpret the details of the landscape in a personal, intimate way. As we discussed in our previous feature of Harry’s work, the artist uses calculated, well-placed marks to form a repeating visual language, a kind of code of brush strokes that the viewer quickly picks up on and that enriches the viewing experience.

Harry’s drawings and collages sit neatly alongside his many paintings, and it’s always interesting to see how an artist with such a defined style can switch between different media.
