Travis Lowe, filmmaker (Spring Creek Films) and TV man from British Columbia, spent a week here at the studio in September 2011, and on the river, filming for a short documentary on Derek’s artwork and career. Travis’s use of unusual lenses and perspectives makes for a visually exciting film and documentary on Derek and Canvasfish.
“It’s hard to tell what came first for Derek DeYoung angling or art? At the age of 6, Derek was declaring to friends and family that he wanted to be a famous artist. Enamoured with angling from an early young age DeYoung’s favourite subject has always been fish. But by the time he left art school at the age of 23, DeYoung realized he needed to push his artwork in a new direction. In order to achieve his goal, he began to experiment with composition, taking the fish’s form away and removing the actually shape of the fish. By zooming in extremely close on his subject, DeYoung’s objective was to portray trout in color and pattern only. The result was the “Abstract Trout Face” series paintings. Derek’s contemporary vision and vibrant use of color challenged the traditional, classic style of angling artwork and eventually received critical acclaim and success.” - from Travis Lowe, Spring Creek Films
