Essential to Dean Tatam Reeves’ landscape painting is direct personal experience acquired on successive painting trips to specific sites over a period of years. Reeves’ watercolours and pastels investigate terrain unique to central and southern Alberta, including Aspen Parkland, Cooking Lake Moraine and the windswept Shortgrass Prairie stretching westward from the Cypress Hills to the Rockies. Reeves’ studio is under an open sky, wherever he plants his painting chair. Born in England, he has lived in Western Canada since 1956.
