Artist Statement

"In my opinion, the sky is the great subject of the Prairies, not only because the horizon is so low thereby drawing the eye upwards, but also because the quality of the light in the sky here results in remarkable colour and form.  It seems to me that so much of this remains to be defined artistically, despite the fact that there are and have been many notable painters of it.  This means that there is still great freedom and opportunity to ‘make it one’s own’, artistically speaking.  You don’t feel everything has been ‘done’. "I turned from abstraction to landscape as I felt that this was more in keeping with my artistic feeling, and the desire to connect with the Canadian land itself.  I would like to convey a particular sense of place in my pictures – what it was like there on that particular place, on that particular day." - Hilary Price
