White Birch, oil on wood, 18" x 72" by artist Daniel Tousignant Daniel Tousignant’s luminous birch paintings create an impact that pulls the viewer directly into nature. Tousignant, who loves to paint blue skies and vast long horizon landscapes, here delves into stark and almost graphic abstract areas.
While he recalls the flat, empty landscape he knew as a boy, growing up on a dairy farm in Minnesota, it is his later memories of traveling by train from London to Amsterdam that inspire these birch paintings. Tousignant lived in London while attending the Royal Academy and supported himself at an Amsterdam youth hostel, making the rail journey every weekend, observing the rolling hills and feathery clouds, and the way in which light dapples the silver grey and green landscape that first influenced his earlier work.
