Pedie Wolfond

Pedie Wolfond is an established abstract artist, known for her large-scale immersive colourful compositions, which evoke the patterns found in light, nature, and music. As an artist, Wolfond strives to capture the psychological affects of colour and light, through her signature use of thin washes of transparent acrylic glazes on unprimed canvas. Her vast paintings not only to reflect light, but radiate it. Wolfond paints her enormous canvases on the floor of her studio, kneeling, reaching, and stretching to apply layer after layer of acrylic washes, saturating to the surface with luscious and vibrant hues. When regarding her vast canvases, the viewer becomes immersed in the artist’s painterly vocabulary of lyrical gestures and pure colour that captivate the mind and imagination. Beginning her painting career in the 1950s, Wolfond’s work came of age with the Colour Field and Abstract Expressionist movements. Wolfond belongs to a generation of women artists, embarking on their careers during the rise of Abstract Expressionism, who had to assert their vision in a predominately male-dominated field. Like many of her female contemporaries during that period, her work remained at the periphery until years later. Now at the age of 83, Pedie Wolfond is recognized for her signature radiant energetic paintings and her contributions to the aesthetic language and processes of Colour Field painting in Canada. 

Pedie Wolfond has been actively exhibiting her work since the mid 1970s. Wolfond’s works can be found in numerous corporate collection as well as private collections in Canada, Unites States, England, Israel, Belgium, France, Italy and Australia.
