The paintings of John Lennard reflect a direct response to nature and the environment. Travel, observation of life, and a study of the international masters continue to infuse Lennard’s artistic expression. Lennard has lived in New York, Paris and Barcelona, and his further travels throughout Canada, the United States and Europe continue to shape his art. His colourful landscape paintings infused with brilliant reds, oranges and blues aptly illustrate the Canadian forests and countryside, as well as the many countries he has visited overseas.
Lennard studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design and the Art Students’ League in New York. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions. His work can be found in corporate collections, including Heenan Blaikie, Tory Tory DesLauriers & Binnington, Joe Fung Architects (Hong Kong), as well as in private collections in New York, Spain, Scotland, Berlin and throughout North America. Last November, he was included in the acclaimed show John Lennard/Jack Bush at Roberts Gallery, where his works were displayed alongside Painter’s Eleven artist Jack Bush. Lennard is represented by Roberts Gallery in Toronto.
