Colville honours the legacy of an iconic Canadian artist and explores the contemporary reverberations of his work. A painter, printmaker, and war artist who drew his inspiration from the world around him, Alex Colville transformed the seemingly mundane events of everyday life into archetypes of the modern condition.
In this volume, Andrew Hunter organizes Colville thematically, incorporating interludes that explore the relationship between Colville's work and the filmmaking of Wes Anderson, Stanley Kubrick, and Sarah Polley, as well as his influence on writers such as Alice Munro. The book includes more than 100 colour reproductions of Colville's paintings.Author: Andrew Hunter
