What’s this Hot Mush all About?

The Canadian school

Pierre AJ Sabourin

The Canadian School of Painting is immersing oneself in nature, to be inspired and create en plein air. AY Jackson and the Group of Seven were infamous for what the Canadian critics called the Hot Mush Style.The Hot Mush Style is the quick manipulation of thick vibrant pigment to create light and shadow. The style was used as the cornerstone for establishing the Canadian School of Painting.

A Y Jackson was Canada’s leading Hot Musher. Holy Cow! That’s a tough one to beat;  I thought my hair loss prevention program had a chance. AY also believed that Canadian Artists should have to climb four mountains, paddle three lakes, portage six beaver dams, and fight off two polar bears, to get the painting.
