Toronto Artist David Bolduc Dies
Toronto Artist David Bolduc died this past week at the age of 65. Bolduc's style has been called. "exotic or eccentric modernism". In the 1970s and 1980s, Bolduc was "a bright star in the constellation of Canadian art."
Bolduc adopted bold use of colours, squeezing oils directly from the tube atop a stained background. The picture and informational source for this blog is on the CBC website.
