A palimpsest of layered acrylics in this large canvas is revealed by calligraphic lines -- created using strips of masking tape -- that expose the artist's initial washes of medium. These lines form loose geometric scaffolding that intersects with curated passages of burgundy, sky blue, forest green, pink, and ochre in an all over balanced and warm composition. Created in 1979, this painting represents a dramatic chapter in Fox's career as he left figurative painting to explore and celebrate the colors of Venetian frescoes and the light filled Mediterranean. John Fox (1927-2008) attended McGill University, the École des Beaux-arts de Montréal and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, School of Art and Design. In 1952, he studied at the Slade School of Art, University of London, followed by two years in Florence and Paris. Fox's artwork is held in many private, corporate and public collections including the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the MacKenzie Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Museum London, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal.
