Vicki Carruthers

Vicki Carruthers begins her paintings with a splash of red. Building upon this blot of paint, the artist then expands this initial shape, adding more paint, taking some away, all the while slowly engulfing the painted surface with bold and vibrant colours. Using stylized shapes to explore grand themes such as love and life, Carruthers looks to the Group of Seven, Norval Morriseau and Ted Harrison for inspiration. An enthusiastic student of colour, Carruthers subscribes to Matisse’s approach to colour; “Colour was not given to use in order that we should imitate nature, it was given to us so that we can express our emotions.”

Carruthers has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Queen’s University and has studied at the Toronto School of Art, Haliburton School of Fine Art, Open Studio, and Ontario College of Art and Design. Her work has been exhibited in Toronto, Aurora, Kitchener, Kleinburg, Fenelon Falls, and Newmarket.
