\\ NEW AT THE GALLERY
This painting, Rushing the Red Line, is inspired by a great Canadian pastime – the outdoor hockey rink under a starry night sky. In a series of three small and two large works produced in 2011, Lennard explored the feeling created when the puck passes the red line.
“At this point, you are out of your comfort zone, you’re on the offensive. This is when you need to concentrate on success, the rush is both physical and emotional. You feel very present – even in the memory of the experience.”
John Lennard’s work is held in private and corporate collections in Canada, the United States and Europe. When not painting, John is a musician and is the head coach of the University of Toronto men's squash team.
