Paul Fournier: Worlds of Wonder
January 21 – April 23, 2017
Launching our 2017 season is a solo exhibition by Markham-based painter Paul Fournier. With a career spanning more than 50 years, Fournier’s creative production has evolved through a careful balance of spontaneity and intuition.Through expansive abstracted compositions, the artist uses painterly strokes and gestures as a means of expressing his personal observations of the natural world. These dramatic and colourful works reveal lush tropical greenery, underwater geological formations and distant celestial phenomena. Ultimately, they are a testament to Fournier’s decade-long experimentation of his medium and his ongoing quest to depict the poetic and spiritual dimensions of nature.
