In Memory of a FAVOURITE ARTIST

The renowned
Canadian artist 
Alex Colville 
has died at home in Wolfville, Nova Scotia , on Tuesday 16 JUly 2013. He was 92.








His Painstaking process

While Colville's images seemed to be taken directly from reality, he drew them from multiple sketches and studies, planning a perfect composition before he began to paint.
The tranquil scenes are deceptive, because something about the relationship between figures or the nature of the landscape will convey loneliness, isolation, parting, work, leisure, estrangement, love.
