Abstract (English)

Catalogue for a survey exhibition of works by Squires – paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures and ceramics – produced between 1957-1998. Stone’s introductory text highlights spiritual, existential and symbolic characteristics of the Newfoundland artist’s work. Kidd’s essay focuses on how Squires’ spiritual journey and search for identity are reflected in the landscapes, surrealistic narratives and portraits. Issues of nationalism and identity are considered in relation to differences between art in Newfoundland and Vancouver. The author also situates Squires’ work within the contexts of romanticism, modernism and postmodernism. Includes comments by Stones on the pieces documented in the catalogue. List of works. Biographical notes. 83 bibl. ref.
