Alex Colville: Selected Drawings

July 15, 1995 - August 20, 1995


Curator:
Year 1995 Theme Drawing & Printmaking, Nova Scotian Artists

Whereas other exhibitions have treated the drawings as evidence of Colville’s working procedure, this selection traced the development of thematic concerns centred on the human figure. Sixty-one drawings represented almost fifty years of artistic production. The exhibition afforded insights into the artist’s process of planning his paintings, revealing uses of point-of-view and scenic blocking reminiscent of cinema.
