This beautifully designed and comprehensive book is published to coincide with a major exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario. It is a splendid record of the work and life of a singularly significant Canadian artist who left a resonant legacy of the value of attachment to place. Greg Curnoe was known as a Canadian nationalist -- more specifically, as a regionalist -- which was reflected in his abiding belief in the importance of working with and from a particular locale. He found, meticulously explored and recorded his place in London, Ontario as painter, family man, ardent amateur historian, irreverent native son and endlessly curious intellect. From this base he created a body of work notable for its exuberant energy and fearless self-revelation, for its effervescent, saturated colour and deep involvement with questions of personal consequence and meaning.

Along with beautiful and plentiful full-colour and black-and-white illustrations, Greg Curnoe: Life and Stuff includes three lively, authoritative texts. Sarah Milroy contributes an essay on Curnoe 's artistic development. Dennis Reid thoughtfully considers his own involvement with Curnoe as friend and colleague, as well as the artist's broad influence. Judith Rodger has developed an annotated chronology of his career that's exemplary in its precise thoroughness.

This book was published in partnership with the Art Gallery of Ontario.
