Colville: Flow of Life


Couple on Beach, 1957

The works of Canadian artist Alex Colville are like poetry to me.  The veteran painter and printmaker expertly captured the flow of everyday life, on the water, at home, in public places.

Colville was an expert at converting those “seemingly mundane figures and events of everyday life into archetypes of the modern condition,” as the Art Gallery of Ontario put it for a retrospective of his work. Go to this Canadian Art magazine page for more images and details of works.
