Canadian artist Eric McCuaig's work explores landscapes, the tension between the figurative and abstraction in painting, and is inspired by memories. McCuaig's paintings have been sold privately to collectors in the USA, Singapore and Canada. Asked to describe his painting style - “It’s primitive, but every work takes a lot out of me. I paint until somehow the image looks right, or it captures the mood I wanted to convey, then I stop. Floating on the edge of abstraction and the figurative. That’s my style.”
