Alex Janvier Lake Shore Life Modern Acrylic Painting on Canvas 1979 Unframed

Sale price$8,500.00


Le Shoppe Too in Michigan is offering a dynamic acrylic painting on canvas titled Lake Shore Life by award-winning Canadian artist Alex Janvier. Titled and dated 1979 on the bottom left. Signed by the artist mid bottom right. This is a quintessential depiction of Janvier's abstract style. According to Ottawa magazine, the sinuous color-streaked lines he paints are like an aerial map of a river system or veins creeping along a body, or grooves cut by skaters into a frozen pond, or some other familiar pattern found in our natural world. There is a sense of of spirituality in his paintings and a celebration of Mother Earth. Dimensions: 41w x 51h (unframed). In very good vintage condition.
