Newzones is honoured to present a third retrospective of the work of Canadian painter William Perehudoff. Following their successful exhibitions 50 Years of Abstraction in 2010 and William Perehudoff: ’60s to ’90s in 2008, the gallery is currently featuring pieces selected from five decades of painting to celebrate the artist’s life and exemplary career. It includes acrylic paintings on paper as well as on canvas. The exhibit takes on added significance with the news of his death in February 2013.

Perehudoff wrote in 1967, “My paintings carry no other message but the surprise, spontaneity and optimism of colour.” Since the early 1940s, Perehudoff made a significant contribution to the development of colour field and abstract painting in Canada. He studied in New York during the 1950s and was greatly influenced by the teachings of Clement Greenberg. A major survey titled The Optimism of Colour: William Perehudoff, a retrospective opened at the Mendel Art Gallery in October 2010 and toured across Canada for two years, with exhibitions at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, the Art Gallery of Windsor, the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa, ON and the Kamloops Art Gallery.

Perehudoff exhibited internationally in London, Paris, New York, Toronto and Chicago. His paintings are in the collection of numerous prestigious Canadian institutions including the National Gallery of Canada and the Museum of  Civilization.
