Painting Description

A wonderful painting for any food and travel lover. John Dyer worked in the hot rice paddy fields in the Philippines recording the textures of this important harvest. The painting is filled with brightness and texture. Palm trees line the background set against a tropical sky. As the rice is winnowed the straw blows away in the breeze. An intriguing painting. 

This Philippines painting is a piece of original art painted with acrylic on canvas by Cornish artist John Dyer.

John Dyer's 'Winnowing in the Wind, the Philippines Rice Harvest' is a beautiful and evocative painting of the rice harvest in the Philippines. Dyer has captured the intense heat and light of the tropics, as well as the hard work of the workers, in this stunning work of art.

The painting depicts water buffalo and rice straw, as well as sacks of rice being carried by workers. The vibrant colors and swirling patterns of the rice straw are a delight to behold, and the painting conveys a sense of both the strenuous effort required to harvest the crop, as well as the beauty of the natural world.

This painting was created for the United Nations year of rice and painted in the rice paddy fields as the rice was harvested, and it is a truly fitting tribute to this important crop. Dyer's use of light and color bring the scene to life, making 'Winnowing in the Wind, the Philippines Rice Harvest' a must-see for anyone interested in art, food or agriculture.

This piece of Cornish art, 'Winnowing in the Wind, the Philippines Rice Harvest' by John Dyer, and other original paintings that are for sale in our online art gallery, can be purchased securely online. We provide free worldwide delivery to your door.

"After the main crop has been collected and threshed by machine, the workers return to the paddy to collect the remaining rice straw by hand. This is then sorted in the breeze to extract as much rice as they can. Water buffalo stand idle in the heat of the day and the light is searingly bright, reflecting on the dry landscape. A tripod is erected to speed up the sifting of the rice grains and individuals winnow small piles by hand using the breeze to separate the rice from the straw. The rice is collected in white sacks and loaded onto an assortment of vehicles – jeepneys, bikes, motorbikes. Later in the day when the farmers have departed, mothers and their children arrive to sift through the rice straw, extracting enough for maybe one meal that evening. Much of the rice is spread in the road to dry and we drive over it as we depart from this amazing location, the rice being raked flat again after our departure."

John Dyer (born 1968)

"There is an innocence and freshness to John Dyer's art that follows a tradition in Cornwall that includes the paintings of Cornwall by Alfred Wallis, Christopher Wood, Fred Yates and Bryan Pearce. Rather than trying to record what he sees, John sets out to capture the 'essence' of his subject. The 'essence' of seagulls, cats, dogs, bobbing boats, or exploding fireworks communicate far more strongly through John's brushstrokes than they would if drawn more traditionally. It is this ability to capture the 'essence' of what is important that seems to appeal to his collectors who have shown great vision and originality in their own careers, such as Tim Smit, Alan Titchmarsh, Toyah Willcox & Kim Wilde."
