Robert Lemay: flowers
Douglas Udell Gallery Edmonton
June 8th- June 22nd, 2013
Opening: Saturday, June 8th, 2-4pm

Artist Statement:
"I’ve spent the winter months painting large, colourful flowers and bright, clean space. The variety of shapes, colours and textures was particularly stimulating against the backdrop of that long season.

I’ve been a still life painter for thirty years. This past year, at age fifty, I decided to strip the still life to its most basic form – an object in space. No tabletop, no wall, no floor, no glass, wood, cloth, or metal. Instead these works explore a balance between what is simple and what is complex, fragile/strong, light/dark. I use the flower as an expression of form and symbol. I believe that the word is also an exhortation: flower. Even in the deepest winter, the coldest season."

- Robert Lemay, May 2013
