“A Darkening Vision,” the title of CUAG’s recent retrospective of Leslie Reid’s paintings, refers not to the Ottawa artist’s palette, but to the intensifying feeling in her work of the tenuous of life. In her catalogue essay, curator Diana Nemiroff traces the evolution of Reid’s treatment of light and space, observing that although Reid’s extraordinarily subtle paintings of the landscape are grounded in observation, their objectivity is underpinned by the preliminary photographs that allow her to contemplate at a remove the sensations and emotions evoked by a particular place.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0770905676, Hardcover)

This thoroughly illustrated monograph traces the 30-year evolution of the painter's treatment of light and space revealing that, although Reid's extraordinarily subtle landscapes are grounded in observation, their objectivity is underpinned by the preliminary photographs that allow her to contemplate at a remove the sensations and emotions evoked by place. The title refers not to her palette, but to the intensifying feeling in her work of the tenuous nature of life. The paintings presented are grouped thematically by air, earth, and water. Air sets works from the 1970s, liminally abstract, delicately nuanced paintings. Earth groups paintings from the artist's travels in France, England, and California during the 1980s and early 1990s. Water spans the mid 1990s to the end of the first decade of the present century, when Reid was focused more narrowly on landscape in Quebec and the Ottawa River. For Leslie Reid, the sensory experience of the landscape is deeply imbued with feeling. What interests her are the perceptual and psychological sensations provoked by the experience of a particular place. The sense of wilderness, real or imaginative, and with it the anxiety of survival, is never completely absent from her work.
