Anchored in the Plasticien tradition, Francine Savard’s practice calls forth a reflection on the processes—and subject itself—of painting. Her work often takes the form of installations and pictorial assemblages through which she explores the phenomenon and language of colour, in relation to art history, writing and the context that underlies the creation and presentation of art.
