Joyce Fournier, Portrait of Mrs. Canals (after Picasso)

About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

"Portrait of Mrs. Canals" is a master copy with a contemporary twist after Pablo Picasso's portrait (completed 1905) of the companion of his good friend Catalan painter Ricard Canals. Joyce was inspired to paint a contemporary version of this piece after seeing the original at the Museu Picasso in Barcelona. This work is painted in oil over an acrylic gessoed base which the artist used to create a fresco-like background. On closer look, one can see the faintly textured underpainting which adds a mystique to the work. This painting is ready to hang in a simple wood floater frame in gold and black (framed dimensions of 37.5" x 31.5" x 2.5") This simple frame was selected to enhance the contemporary feel of the work and to protect the painting during exhibitions. Please Note: the frame in the in situ images is very similar but not the actual frame.

"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."
