A brilliant orange setting sun, azure blue waves, gray skies on a cloudy day…. These are but a few of the 22 individual watercolours painted by the celebrated abstract artist, David Bolduc (1945-2010) on 22 consecutive days in the fishing village of Pouch Cove, Newfoundland. In 1994, Bolduc spent almost a month in the famous village of 2000 at an ‘artist in residence’ program and loved the rugged coastline so much he bought a second home there. “The kind of atmospheric things that happen I like very much — lights in the rain, lights in the fog — I’ve been playing for years and years with this idea of something coming at you out of another element.” David Bolduc Born in Toronto, Bolduc attended the Ontario College of Art and then the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts School until 1965. In 1968, he received a Canada Council Grant that allowed him to travel in Europe and Asia for eight months. He continued to travel extensively over the next 33 years while exhibiting annually at public and commercial galleries. The artist’s vibrant and joyful colors continue the traditions of modernism he embraced in the work of Jack Bush as well as Henri Matisse. David Bolduc’s work is held in private, corporate, and public collections.
