Joel Masewich

Artistic Statement:

My paintings draw inspiration from nature, offering abstract interpretations of my travels. Incorporating collage elements, I aim to capture the hidden energy within landscapes.

Using stainless steel and copper, I create large-scale collages, while colour theory plays a central role in my work. I believe painting should provide a fresh perspective, inviting viewers to see the world in a new light. Many find my art to be a bridge to understanding unconventional views of landscapes, which is immensely gratifying for me.

Biography:

Meet Joel Masewich, a dedicated, full-time abstract painter, whose emotional connection to nature is channelled into his mixed media collages.

Whether it’s the fluidity of water or the brilliance of light, each exploration’s palette bursts with vivid complementary colours and layers, revealing dynamic brushwork and graphite markings, exuding a visceral sense of positivity and energy.

Joel’s vision bridges the gap between representational and abstract painting. Working primarily with acrylic on canvas, custom panels, paper, and powder-coated laser cut stainless steel, his creative process is a journey of instinctual exploration, with each piece coming to life in a single, uninterrupted burst of creativity.

After three decades of creating and raising their children in rural Ontario, he and his wife moved to Nova Scotia, all to be nearer to their delightfully wonderful granddaughter Charlotte. Though Joel fondly reminisces about the vibrant art community he left behind he finds renewed inspiration in the rugged beauty of the Maritimes.

Joel’s work can be found in private and corporate collections, as well as in galleries and across both Canada and United States, where they continue to captivate audiences with their unique blend of colours, shapes and materials.
