Colonne belongs to Ulysse Comtois's most critically acclaimed body of works. When he first began to experiment with sculpture in the early 1960s, Comtois was already an established non-figurative painter. His three-dimensional works met with an equal if not greater success and asserted his position as a leading figure on the post-war Canadian art scene. The artist began to create modular sculptures such as this in the late 1960s. Colonne is comprised of a machined aluminium vertical core supporting 61 rotating horizontal plates of laminated plastic. Made with innovative materials, these sculptures were intended by the artist to invite viewers to interact with the work by physically moving the modular parts. Colonne is a rare example of the artist's most iconic and coveted works. His modular sculptures are in many important public collections, such as the National Gallery of Canada.
