About

Alex Colville’s Pacific is unusual as it was created outside of his usual environs of Canada. Painted in 1967 during a six month teaching position in Santa Cruz, California, the work evokes palpable tension, and leaves the viewer searching for context. While the male subject seems relaxed, and the ocean somewhat benign, the presence of the handgun suggests dilemma and darkness. Colville himself commented “I don’t think the painting is about suicide, I guess I think of the gun and the table as necessary parts of human life, upon which it is possible sometimes to turn one’s back.”

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free mat board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like a wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
