Description Vertical bars of grey acrylic, dove to light charcoal, move irrevocably across this elegant acrylic by Milly Ristvedt. The bars, that appear to breathe rhythmically against the picture plane, are made more contemplative by the profound title of the painting -- apparent nothingness is actually everything. Thoughts on this inherent and known contradiction in the nature of the universe emerge through quiet meditation of this monochrome canvas.

Milly Ristvedt (b. 1942, Kimberley, BC) MA, RCA, began her career in Toronto in 1964 after studies with Takao Tanabe at the Vancouver School of Art. At 24, her work was included in the Centennial Exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario and featured at the National Gallery of Canada. She was chosen for prestigious exhibitions in Winnipeg, Paris and Lausanne. By 1969, Ristvedt was sharing a studio with Jack Bush and showing with the Carmen Lamanna Gallery. That same year, Barry Lord observed in Art in America that Ristvedt’s paintings were “…more insistent than Bush, more consciously structured than Molinari.”

Over her long career, Ristvedt has had over 50 solo exhibitions. Her abstract, acrylic canvases are held in private, corporate and public collections including the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal and Harvard University.
