“I pay special attention, in my work, to the telling of the tale. My objective is to recapture lost histories and simple stories, which become woven into the folklore of a culture.”
I recently participated in The Artist Project art fair at the CNE in Toronto, bringing some brand new paintings.You can still see the spectacular site and my profile on it. We also made a list of all the Peterborough area artists who were at the show.
Lost Histories; The Gypsies of 1909 was shown at the WKP Kennedy Gallery in North Bay from November 15 to December 21 2013. Also last year, I had a very successful show at Ross Fine Art in Letterkenny, Co. Donnegal; the paintings can be seen here on my site.
JoEllen Brydon is a visual artist-painter, an interpretor of history, and a creator of mixed media special exhibitions. She has been exhibiting since 1985, and her many paintings hang in homes and collections on both sides of the Atlantic.
Her art tells the stories of people she meets, friends, neighbours and strangers. They tell stories of her ancestors – rooted in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. They tell of the people in her beloved Cavan hills, and of folks she finds spinning their yarns and living their lives down the street and beyond. She has spent her career telling their stories on canvas and board, in major installations, and simple paintings.
On this site, you will see paintings that are currently available for sale, as well as a selection of paintings that show the full scope of Brydon’s work. You will also see her most famous special exhibitions.
