Scottish-born artist Jock Macdonald initially moved to Canada to take up a lecturing position at the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts, and went on to become a key, formative figure in the Painters Eleven, a group of painters who vigorously promoted abstract painting across Canada. Released to coincide with an ambitious new retrospective exhibition organised by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Robert McLaughlin Gallery and the Vancouver Art Gallery, Jock Macdonald: Evolving Form includes contributions by academics and writers including Anna Hudson, Assistant Professor in Canadian Art and Curatorial Studies at York University, Michelle Jacques, Chief Curator at Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Linda Jansma, Senior Curator at The Robert Mclaughlin Gallery, Oshawa and Ian Thom, Senior Curator at Vancouver Art Gallery. Previous publications dedicated to Macdonald?s work have not analyzed the artist?s use of colour which, as an abstractionist and later a borderline Surrealist, was arguably the most significant part of his practice. In this lavishly illustrated book colour reproductions of Macdonald's works can be seen alongside the writings of leading experts in the field of Canadian art history.
