Biography Jean McEwen
Jean Albert McEwen was a painter, printmaker, muralist, poet and
educator who was born, lived (except for 3 years in Paris) and died in
Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
His mediums were oil, acrylic, watercolour, encaustic, pencil, ink and
stained glass. As an abstract expressionist, colour field and lyrical
abstractionist his subjects were spatial relationships, colour, texture
and shape. His most typical mature work is recognized by a picture
plane that is divided into rectangular or square spaces filled with
mixtures of opaque and translucent paint. The effect is a surface of
lush colour and texture that draw the viewer's attention into the work.
