Fiery red-orange and yellow fan of coral sits on a jeweled sea floor in this playful lithograph by celebrated Canadian artist Paul Fournier. Above the waving fan in this intimately sized lithograph, are cool indigo waves. This print from a series of six coral reef inspired images created in 2001 is number 22 in an edition of 50. Image size is 21 x 31 inches. Page size is 30 x 40 inches. The work is unframed and easily shipped. Fournier first emerged within a movement of third-generation non-figurative painters who worked in Toronto during the 1960s. His peers included Milly Ristvedt, K.M. Graham, David Bolduc and others exploring techniques and forms of post-painterly abstraction. Fournier began studies in 1959 at the Ontario College of Art and Design. He soon became known for his use of bright fauvist colours for which he was dubbed an "exotic modernist" by New York art critic Donald Kuspit. Fauvism was a post-impressionist movement in France characterized by the "wild' use of colour. Fournier has had major solo exhibitions in Toronto, Guelph, Hamilton, Edmonton, Houston and Washington, D.C. His work was selected by critic Andrew Hudson for 14 Canadians: A Critic's Choice at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and by Boston Museum of Fine Arts curator Kenworth Moffett for inclusion in The new Generation: A Curator's Choice at the Andre Emmerich Gallery in New York. In 1996, Fournier received an Honorary Doctor of Laws from Sir Wilfrid Laurier University. His paintings and graphics have been exhibited throughout Canada, the United States and Europe and are included in most major public collections, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Tate Museum, as well as in private collections in the United States, South America and Europe.
