  • About the artwork

    'A Wise Woman Once Said' female bust is professionally cast in Toronto at MST Bronze. This piece reflects serenity and wisdom. A beautiful piece that invites touch, she has a contemporary stippled teal patina with a hint of brown on the dress. She can be displayed in variety of angles (front, side or back).

    Classically trained as a figurative painter, I was inspired to create this piece directly from the model with full completion later in the studio. The original piece was created using WED water based air dry clay (no firing). Once leather-dry a silicone mold was made from which to produce a limited edition of 10. The edition will have a variety of patinas.

    This piece is the second in the edition of only ten (2/10) signed, numbered and stamped on the back right. She may be affixed to a base if desired, however I prefer her to stand alone as shown.

Joyce Fournier

Born in: 1958


Translation in progress

Born in Montreal, Quebec, Joyce is an internationally collected Multidisciplinary Painter and Sculptor living and working in Toronto.

While her main focus is Abstract Expressionist painting, she also has a passion for sculpting and drawing the human form for which she was academically trained.

Over the last twelve years Joyce has exhibited in solo and group shows within Canada and internationally. Featured on several occasions in American Art Collector magazine since 2009, her work is found in private and public collections in Canada, the USA, and Europe.


"My paintings are Abstract Expressionist and entirely conceptual. They are bold and passionate created with conviction in response to a specific emotion or state of being. Working medium to large in size I start by randomly applying heavy bodied- Gesso to the canvas to create a geometric design. I then use this design as a template for acrylic paint application. I rarely use colour directly from the tube and prefer instead to mix my own. I feel this lends intimacy to the work. Using large brushes and / or palette knives I allow some paint to drip while scraping out various areas to reveal the under painting. My goal is to say as much as possible without having a big discussion. I want people to see what uniquely speaks to them, depending on their own situation. People see different things in my work. Movement, Colour, and Passion are words I often hear people use when they speak about my work. I have been most influenced by the great Abstract Expressionists of post World War II America. Specifically, I feel my work most resembles what one would see if Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline and Hans Hofmann had collaborated to paint something together."
