Works by Raymond Thériault celebrate the outer structure of our modern urban landscape: concrete and glass, bricks and stonework, curbs and doorways. The artist has made each of his landscapes a place you want to walk into and explore, a place where you want to spend time or lose yourself. Though they capture but a moment in time, these paintings are meant to be browsed through and savoured slowly.
While some of the works concentrate on the interplay between architecture and the human presence, there are also evocative touches of portraiture and still life among this collection, displaying the artist’s versatility and variety of style. There are day scenes and alluring images after nightfall.
In addition to galleries in Alberta and British Columbia, Raymond’s work can be found in the permanent collections of several major corporations, such as Suncor and Canadian Utilities, in law offices such as Ernst & Young and Bennet Jones Verchère, as well as in numerous private collections throughout the world.
