"Couple on Beach" by Alex Colville
Oh look – bathers. Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be if you have been paying attention. This beautiful painting features not only one but two faceless figures. Alex Colville is a giant in Canadian art and I am not suggesting he can’t paint faces. I am just pointing out that in many instances he chooses not to and once you start looking for it, it becomes obvious. In this case blatant and old hat, but it works.
