Alex Colville

Mapping Colville

Alex Colville's life and work revolved around two regions: the Tantramar Marsh of New Brunswick and the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Colville's scenes feature elements from these landscapes that make his settings immediately recognizable to those familar with them. But Colville's commitment to constructing scenes that look and feel utterly authentic also results in images with widespread appeal. They resonate beyond particular times and places.
