Over the past 30 years, Ed Bartram, one of Canada's foremost painter/printmakers, has consistently found his source of inspiration to be the rugged northern landscape of the Precambrian Shield.

 

Unlike his predecessors, such as the Group of Seven, Bartram explores contemporary techniques and influences to focus upon the abstract and dynamic elements in the landscape. With his innovative techniques, he effectively captures the powerful forces which were at work during the formation of Georgian Bay's metamorphic bedrock.
