“I have found Sinclair's work compelling for decades, first discovering his work in the early 70's on my lunch hour tours of galleries in Toronto. The first painting I purchased is a watercolour by Sinclair that I continue to enjoy to this day.
Having looked at many of Sinclair's ‘roads,’ I often think of him when I am in the mountains. His roads appearing and disappearing abruptly, then perhaps reappearing again in the distance, the negative space of the sky, the sense of almost being close to the peak of the mountain always give me a sense of wonder. This for me is one of the powers of art – causing the viewer to contemplate the world from another perspective and wonder what might be around the corner.”
