This is a fascinating survey of the state of contemporary painting in Canada. This ambitious foray into painting as it is practiced in Canada today tackles an almost overwhelming subject to discover movements and tendencies each with their own characteristics and objectives. Closely reviewing the works of dozens of artists painting today, this magnificently illustrated volume reveals distinct artistic categories: figures of reality; fictional worlds; painting as the subject; and, finally, hybrid practices, in which painting develops in osmosis with other art disciplines to produce object-paintings and photograph-paintings. With 120 works reproduced in full colour and complete biographical notices on all artists, this authoritative tome is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the redefined space that painting has claimed for itself in the visual arts in the 21st century.
