Avatar references the Avatar Grove near Port Renfrew, British Columbia, a place Deon Venter often visits for inspiration. Says Venter: “In the rain forest, thousand-year-old trees carve their way through blinding glimpses of the setting or rising sun. There, I can make small sketches to capture the experience of the forest before it’s interpreted and deconstructed in large paintings in my studio. As abstractions of reality, these paintings are allegorical, and each composition is an attempt to capture a spiritual and emotional experience – one that is aligned with the rational search for those timeless truths inherent in the mystical.”
