Marcel Barbeau (1925 – 2016): A Life Well-travelled
“It will be hard to imagine a world without the presence of Marcel Barbeau. Marcel passed away January 2, 2016. His work has been a guiding light since the mid-1940s. We followed his every move as painter, sculptor, photographer and performance artist. He traversed much of the territory of abstract art, as a trailblazer rather than a follower. The youngest member of Les Automatistes, signator to the 1948 Refus Global, Barbeau created some of the most commanding, challenging allover, tachiste abstractions of the period. For this alone he could be amply celebrated and remembered. Some of us, including myself, think he made some of the most inventive works of the entire group.” Source : Jeffrey Spalding C.M., RCA, GalleryWest.
