The Idea of North

The ocean is not just blue. The snow is not pure white. In Lawren Harris’s world, there are more than colors.

The Idea of North is truly an amazing exhibition and experience. I got to see all the colors closely. Lawren Harris mixed pink, purple, green, yellow and many others to make his palette of shadows vivid and alive. The different strokes he created on the canvas is another new world.  All the photos I took cannot compare to seeing the art works in person.

His idea of north is more than just landscapes. The spiritual meaning makes the paintings so beautiful and I stood in front of them feeling so small.
