 Jack Turpin

Jack Turpin

From an early age Jack Turpin was attracted to various painting media, but the immediate and direct qualities of drawing commanded his greatest attention from that time to the present. However, the undeniable tradition of impressionist and realist painters of the Canadian landscape has exerted the greatest influence in Jack’s painting.

Having been brought up in British Columbia where the built environment is usually dominated by the overwhelming beauty of its natural setting, he tends to direct his gaze to the literal edges of human activity - where man and Nature overlap, but Nature predominates.

As such, the appearance and influence of man’s presence usually assumes a subtle role in the subject matter of Jack’s paintings. Recurring themes in his art are soft light and summoning shapes, which hint of a story untold or a destination not fully revealed.

Jack sees his role as an artist not unlike that of a storyteller. He invites the viewer to pause, look more closely into lengthening afternoon shadows or follow a beckoning, overgrown path.

Since his recent retirement from the Langley District as a secondary school teacher, Jack has more time to pursue his artwork. A fan of painting en plein air, Jack often goes on painting sojourns with fellow artist, Perry Haddock.

Jack is an associate member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and shows his work at the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery.
