Filomena Kandola Oil Paintings
Filomena Kandola has been making art for as long as she can remember. From early grade school it was her favourite pastime and remained a passion of hers until college and after. She studied fine art at the Ontario College of Art & Design with a specialization in drawing and painting. She has always been moved by the impressionists and expressionists, as well as the Group of Seven painters and enjoys painting in oil and soft pastel to this day. Her favourite subjects to render are often the landscapes around her where she grew up and still lives in Woodbridge, Ontario. She is also inspired by the Canadian landscape coast to coast. These oil paintings depict a Newfoundland coastal landscape, Algonquin in autumn and the Kortright Centre, the McMichael Art Gallery grounds and a neighboring farm in the Woodbridge area.
Born in 1954, Tom attended the former Ontario College of Art from 1972-74. Today the institute is known as O.C.A.D. to fellow Torontonians but in the wider world it is known as Ontario College of Art & Design.
Tom studied drawing, oil painting and printmaking while mastering woodcuts and silk-screening. In his later years he returned to his love of painting. As an avid cyclist the majority of his paintings reflect his love of landscape vistas which are his touchstones. A touch of history or even early urbanism can be seen in all of his pieces and enjoyed by all.
