Alfred Pellan had a courageous and eclectic approach to art. Driven by a desire for reinvention, he was perpetually evolving. From his very first paintings, through his Modernist canvases, murals, and theatrical work, to his unusual objects and late serigraphs, he taught his audience to expect the unexpected. Pellan engaged with abstraction, played with techniques borrowed from cutting-edge movements such as Cubism and Surrealism, and eagerly explored a range of media. But a common thread runs through the artist’s varied oeuvre: he maintains a balance between line and colour that creates a sense of harmony in every work.
