Casting Shadows
Jeff Bellerose
9x12 P.B.
148 pgs.

In contrast to the main body of his work, Bellerose's seascapes in oil show the pleasant lightness and illusory transparency of a watercolor. However, he is most successful at depicting man-made objects – bridges, buildings, interiors, all bathed in warm afternoon or evening light. The cast shadows of his objects are willfully transformed into abstract designs, thus paying tribute to both traditional and non-objective art at the same time.

Be it cityscapes or interiors, an overall feeling of nostalgia pervades his canvasses, presenting to the viewer a world at peace with itself.

- Raimonds Staprans, Artist and Playwright
