An excellent example of modern abstraction, created in a monumental scale 35 years ago, and just recently released by the estate of John Fox.

(1927-2008 Montreal, PQ) John Fox was influenced by Goodridge Roberts while attending the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, School of Art and Design (1946-49). He taught at the Saidye Bronfman Centre and Concordia University, and spent time in Venice from the mid-70s until his death. Using texture overlays and color, his large canvases are quietly contemplative, elegant yet painterly. Fox’s work is found in major public, corporate and private collections in Canada, the US and Europe.

This particular work is a powerful example of his use of ripped, layered and collaged canvas. Painted in 1982, it was the title piece in the retrospective exhibition John Fox Abstraction (May 2015), and is on the cover of the recently published book of the same name.
