Shuswap Lake Sunset
Like ghosts, a popular shoreline walk for many dogs and their owners with a sun setting over Shuswap Lake in Sicamous BC Canada.
Shuswap Lake is a lake located in south-central British Columbia, Canada that drains via the Little River into Little Shuswap Lake. Little Shuswap Lake is the source of the South Thompson River, a branch of the Thompson River, a tributary of the Fraser River. It is at the heart of a region known as the Shuswap Country or “the Shuswap”, noted for its recreational lakeshore communities including the city of Salmon Arm. The name “Shuswap” is derived from the Shuswap or Secwepemc First Nations people, the most northern of the Interior Salish peoples, whose territory includes the Shuswap.
Camille Hilaire (1916-2004)
Camille Hilaire was born in 1916 in Metz, France. He studied at L’Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and participated in group shows in France and 18 other foreign countries since 1945. He had eight one-man shows in France and abroad since 1951 with regular exhibits at numerous French salons including: the Salon D’Automne, the Salon des Tuileries and the Salon des Independents.
The recipient of eight national and international awards including Le Prix de Venise, Le Chevalier des Arts et Lettres and Le Chevalier de l’Ordre du Merite Italien, Camille Hilaire’s works are valued additions in the collections of the French state and national governments, the Musee Djakarta in Indonesia and in Princeton University in the United States.
Camille Hilaire’s compositions manage to assert structure and achieve power by colour. He found a wonderful and constant sense of calm and scale, capturing light and the elements. Hilaire’s confident awareness of structure is manifest in his landscapes often characterised by their fresh and spicy green. Thus, nature and elements became a pretext on which the artist could “push” colour to generate the feel.
