BRENT LAYCOCK, b. Lethbridge, Alberta, 1947. Laycock, like many of his contemporaries, tends to paint from nature on large sheets. His work is influenced to some extend by postwar abstraction, often taking advantage of controlled "accidents" caused by washes bleeding into adjacent washes, though it retains something of the broad handling and colour clarity of Walter Phillips.
