This first monograph on the work of Montreal painter Eva Richardson features recent canvases as well as collages she makes from found materials she describes as “found paintings”. While her earlier work sought to capture, in a minimalist abstract idiom, a sense of the land, Richardson’s more recent work finds its impetus from the sites and objects of her urban environment – the stained pages and covers of old books, rusted metal surfaces or the scarred façade of a crumbling wall. Her collages, compositionally edge-to-edge, emphasize the flatness of the picture plane, while her recent paintings capture a greater sense of movement, fluctuation and depth within that plane. Eva Richardson has exhibited her work in Canada, the USA, the U.K., Norway and Japan. In English and French.
