Abstract (English)

"This solo exhibition traces a career that spans more than three decades. Selected from a much larger body of work by Ottawa painter Leslie Reid, the paintings presented are grouped thematically by air, earth, and water. “Air” sets works from the 1970s, liminally abstract, delicately nuanced paintings of the skies over Grand Calumet Island in the Ottawa River valley alongside recent paintings of Cape Pine on the southernmost tip of the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland, where thick, enveloping fog creates its own palpable whiteness. “Earth” groups paintings from the artist’s travels in France, England, and California during the 1980s and early 1990s. “Water” spans a lengthy period from the mid 1990s to the end of the first decade of the present century, when Reid was focused more narrowly on family property in Cantley, Quebec, and returns to the Ottawa River towards the end" -- Publisher's web site.
