  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    'A Wise Woman Once Said...' was exhibited as part of WOMAN'S ESSENCE MUSA international Art Space exhibition in Collaboration with UNESCO in Rome, September 2020.

    This sculpture 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 a variety of angles (front, side, or back).

    Classically trained as a figurative painter, Joyce was inspired to create this piece directly from the model with full completion later in the studio. Professionally cast in Toronto at MST Bronze, 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, Joyce prefers her to stand alone as shown.

Joyce Fournier

Canada Born in: 1958

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."
