Niagara Falls in Winter, 2020, is an exhibition of acrylic paintings in which Gwen has experimented with multiple textures and glazes to present her impression of seeing “The Falls” in winter on numerous occasions over many years.
“I am an experimental expressionist painter. I have completed several series of acrylic paintings revealing the moods and energies of water – whirlpools, waterfalls, and tsunamis. For the Niagara Falls in Winter series, I created acrylic paintings expressing both the rugged beauty and the powerful energy and force of this huge waterfall. I experienced the impact of these waters in many winter climates over many years of visiting “The Falls”. I applied many layers of colours of paint, both thick and thin, building up ridges and suggesting the power of the falls dropping and the mists that occur.” Gwen Tooth
