Water Music

About

Passages of rose, mauve, indigo, green and gold dance in a choreography of color in this lyrical painting by Milly Ristvedt. Color and the grid are the focus of this artist's work paintings that through one's lens of experience reveal a narrative. Here the artist refers to the experience of Handel's composition "Water Music" composed for the British King George I. "Painting is my freedom 'to be' in the world, to transform what I think and feel about life, to express the essence of things that matter. Color is the magical sensation and substance, the 'philosopher's stone,' that for me represents hope in a time of great challenge for us all." Milly Ristvedt (b. 1942, Kimberley, BC) MA, RCA, began her career in Toronto in 1964 after studies with Takao Tanabe at the Vancouver School of Art. At 24, her work was included in the Centennial Exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario and featured at the National Gallery of Canada. She was chosen for prestigious exhibitions in Winnipeg, Paris and Lausanne. By 1969, Ristvedt was sharing a studio with Jack Bush and showing with the Carmen Lamanna Gallery. That same year, Barry Lord observed in Art in America that Ristvedt’s paintings were “…more insistent than Bush, more consciously structured than Molinari.” Over her long career, Ristvedt has had over 50 solo exhibitions. Her abstract, acrylic canvases are held in private, corporate and public collections including the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal and Harvard University.
