Ed Bartram (passed away August 25, 2019), was one of Canada’s foremost painter/printmakers, had consistently found his source of inspiration to be the rugged northern landscape of the Precambrian Shield. Unlike his predecessors, such as the Group of Seven, Bartram explored contemporary techniques and influences to focus upon the abstract and dynamic elements in the landscape. With his innovative techniques, he effectively captured the powerful forces which were at work during the formation of Georgian Bay’s metamorphic bedrock.
