Alex Colville

One of the greatest realist painters of our time, Alex Colville (Canadian, 1920–2013) captured moments of seemingly ordinary life in images touched with surrealism and symbolism. The artist spent most of his life in Sackville, New Brunswick, and Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Although his subject matter often reflected his immediate environment—family and the landscape near his home—his approach transcended the personal and regional. Rendered with meticulous precision in a multilayered pointillist style, Colville’s paintings have an underlying geometric structure that contributes to what he hoped would be “a kind of ordering, fulfilling, illuminating sensation.” Colville’s work is in the collections of major museums and galleries worldwide, among them the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
