Milly Ristvedt
Rising Water (Paradise Paintings) - large, abstract, series, acrylic on canvas

2017

US$9,900

About

A ballet of colorful squares and rectangles float on a wash of turquoise streaked through with mauve. A conversation about visual balance emerges from this bold acrylic painting titled "Rising Water" from the Paradise group of paintings. The eight canvases in this group, titled after Paradise Papers, reflect on the narrative of offshore havens and their implications. Ristvedt is an established master of post-painterly abstraction. Early in her career in Toronto in the late 1960s, Ristvedt shared a studio with Canadian painter Jack Bush, met art critic Clement Greenberg and was inspired by American painters Jules Olitiski and Frank Stella. Ristvedt’s work can be found in major public collections including the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, The Musée d'art contemporain in Montreal, Harvard University, Vancouver Art Gallery, Canada Council Art Bank, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Winnipeg Art Gallery, Agnes Etherington Art Centre and more. Her work has been included in many publications, including Nasgaard’s Abstract Painting in Canada (2014). Ristvedt was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 2004 and honored with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012. Since 1968, Ristvedt has received seven Canada Council awards and two Ontario Arts Council awards. She has had over 50 solo exhibitions and been part of numerous group shows.

About the Artist

Milly Ristvedt

Milly Ristvedt, RCA, began her career in Toronto in 1964, after studies with Takao Tanabe at the Vancouver School of Art. In Toronto, during the 1960s and 1970s, she was making and exhibiting large-scale paintings alongside a small but defined group of non-figurative painters who, like Ristvedt, had planted roots in modernism. These roots continue to run deep for Ristvedt, who completed her MA in Art History at Queen's University in 2011 with a thesis that explored color in the grid of contemporary painting. Ristvedt's paintings are part of private and public collections, including the Art Gallery of Ontario, Montréal Museum of Fine Arts and the Vancouver Art Gallery. She has had over 50 solo exhibitions. In 2012, Ristvedt received the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal for her service as an advocate for artists. (Biography provided by OENO Gallery)
