Biography

Barbara McGivern was born in 1955. She studied at the Toronto School of Art and at the Ontario College of Art. She has had numerous solo exhibitions as well as selected group exhibitions in Canada and in other parts of the world.

A typical Barbara McGivern painting vibrates with barely restrained energy. Boldly composed and saturated with colour, her canvases are basically abstract. The square has become one of her favourite devices, but she is also inspired by the shapes and colours of landscape.

Barbara's works can be found in prominent private and corporate collections around the world.

In Barbara's words:

"I have found that the gold has added an empowering element to my paintings by adding a richness that could never be achieved with any other material. I paint over it, drip paint on it and sometime cover it up completely because I did not like the painting and started over...there are many paintings out there with layers of gold under them...but you can not melt the gold down as it is so fine and wafer thin....but I could not use anything else but real gold.. " Barbara.
