Paul Fournier
World of Wonders III

2013

$25,000

About

Bold and optimistic large scale work by this master of colorful abstraction. Yellows, reds, blues and greens are applied to this canvas in thin layers like watercolor, and then built up to create texture, while letting the colors run into one another. Small notes of white pop forward on the canvas. Paul Fournier was born in Simcoe, Ontario in 1939, and spent his early years in Hamilton. He studied at the Ontario College of Art, and later studied etching as a guest artist under Professor George Wallace at McMaster University. Fournier has travelled through Canada, England, Northern Ireland, the Middle East, the Caribbean, Florida and other regions in the Southern United States. He resides and has his studio in Toronto. Fournier has had major solo exhibitions in Toronto, Guelph, Hamilton, Edmonton, Houston and Washington, D.C. His work was brought to international attention through the important exhibition - 14 CANADIANS: A CRITIC'S CHOICE - which was selected by critic Andrew Hudson for the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (The Smithsonian Institution) in Washington, D.C. and the group exhibition - THE NEW GENERATION: A CURATOR'S CHOICE - organised by Kenworth Moffett of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts for the Andre Emmerich Gallery in New York. Most recently, he received a retrospective exhibition at the Varley Gallery in Markham (2017). His paintings and graphics have been exhibited throughout Canada, the United States and Europe and are included in most major public collections, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Tate Museum, as well as in private collections in the United States, South America and Europe.
