Abstract

Alf Crossley

Alf Crossley expresses a love for nature though his artwork. His style combines impressionism, expressionism, and the rural setting of Pass Creek just outside of Castlegar where Alf makes his home. It is also the perfect environment for painting “en plein air”. His favourite medium is oils as they offer more flexibility when painting outdoors because of their slow drying qualities. He never paints from a photograph preferring the experience of being part of nature and being charged and inspired by his locale. He attended Vancouver School of Art from 1961-65 which later became known as Emily Carr University of Art + Design. He studied with other Canadian greats such as Jack Shadbolt, Takao Tanabe, and Don Jarvis.
