Historique

Thomas deVany Forrestall is a Canadian painter born in Middleton, Nova Scotia in 1936. After graduating in 1958 from Mount Allison University (where he studied with Alex Colville), Tom Forrestall was assistant curator at Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton in 1959. The following year he became a full time painter. His realistic works, often done in egg tempera, convey his ideas of the East Coast landscape and its dwellings. From the early 1960s, Forrestall experimented with panel shaped from triangle to T-forms; each chose to fit his painterly ideas. He also painted a large number of out-of-doors watercolours, which express much the same ideas as his egg tempera work, but in a more relaxed, and joyous mood. His watercolours, in contrast to his more metaphysical and individual canvases, form one long series and deal with sense of place. He became an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1986.
