About the Artist
Each of Larry Fanning's canvases glows with the purity of nature. On travels throughout the American West, he uses camera and sketchpad to gather ideas which he later completes in the oil medium at his mountaintop studio in Colarado. Given his subtle use of mood-provoking tones, it is perhaps surprising to learn that the artist is colourblind, relying upon his mind to perceive what his eyes cannot. Fanning began his career in commercial art. In the 1960's however, his growing interest in ecological and spiritual philosophies influenced his approach to painting, and his work began to reflect an increased sensitivity to the beauty and significance of all living things. Of his beloved West, Fanning says: "In its richly endowed landscapes, in its wildlife, and in the dreams of its people there pulses an energy that is sacred and life-giving.
