Executed in 1962 during Marcelle Ferron’s Parisian period (1953 to 1966), this oil on canvas bears witness to the painter’s abilities in composition and texture. Here, she arranges layers of colour in sharp overlapping strokes with her palette knife. Her purples melt into swathes of black or appear underneath luminous stretches of white. Enhanced on each side with brilliant green and light yellow, the composition attains a delicate balance. Her planes of colour fold and unfold in fluid, wavelike movements. The composition is restless and dynamic, yet seems to follow an internal order. This compelling piece is a quintessential example from Ferron’s best and most coveted period. At the time, she participated in group shows such as Antagonisme at the Louvre in 1960 and at the Musée d’art moderne in 1962 and 1965. She won the silver medal at the Bienal de São Paulo in 1961, making her the first Québécoise to receive such an international recognition. Ferron was also a signatory of the 1948 Refus global manifesto and one of the prominent figures of the Automatist movement.
