Celebrated local painter Halin de Repentigny has created this series of anatomy paintings in a style that is a complete departure from the colorful landscapes that he is known for in the Yukon. Inspired by the intricacies and structures of the human body, this set of anatomically correct paintings serves both as a memento mori and a testament to the sophistication of the human form.
About the Artist
Halin de Repentigny is an acclaimed artist with paintings held in national and international collections. Originally from Montreal, Halin first made his name when he moved to Dawson City, Yukon. He became well known for his depictions of life in Canada’s Klondike, interpreting the beauty and majesty of the remote northern wilderness and capturing it on canvas. Through the early years spent living on the land in the far north Halin continued to paint the world he had grown to love. His love of landscape, colour and light is now manifested in his winter home in Patagonia, Argentina while the Klondike summers continue to inspire his work.
After more than forty years of painting Halin’s style is mature and confident. His textures are sophisticated, luxurious and luminescent. Halin says that “the right light is like a jewel, I know a painting works when it creates its own light.”
