Michel Daigneault

It Was Once Red

1990
With a dash of irony, Michel Daigneault explores the vocabulary of abstract painting - for example, his use of two canvases instead of one alludes to the repetition and variation often found in abstract work. The title suggests that this painting has looked quite different at other stages in its development.
