Alex Colville: Return builds upon the extensive body of literature and exhibitions about one of Canada’s most renowned, award-winning artists. Beginning with Embarkation (1994), this book, which accompanies a traveling exhibition and a Website, showcases Colville’s paintings and prints of the last ten years and discusses them in relation to select earlier pieces and the several contexts in which they were created. It suggests that his creative process and his new finished work constitute a personal mode of witnessing, an essential visual testimony in response to trauma.
