Description:
Raymond John Mead CGP CSGA P11 1921 - 1998 Canadian Untitled oil on canvas signed and dated 1959 40 1/2 x 39 in 102.9 x 99.1cm Provenance: By descent to the present Private Collection, Toronto Ray Mead’s career blossomed under the mentorship of artist Hortense Gordon, which led to Mead participating in annual exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Hamilton after 1947 and his involvement in the pivotal group Painters Eleven, formed in 1953 in Toronto. Mead had settled in Hamilton, Ontario, after his service as a fighter pilot in the Royal Air Force in World War II. His exposure to North American scenery across Canada and the United States was a major source of inspiration, and he derived his horizontal and vertical planes directly from the landscape. Three suspended forms, the focal points of Untitled, show Mead’s control of the pictorial composition, while his application of paint displays his development of colour through underpainting—a technique that he cultivated throughout his career. This 1959 oil on canvas, a magnificent work from a period of artistic growth for Mead, demonstrates key qualities that continued to be significant characteristics of works produced later in Mead’s career.

Ray Mead’s early training at the Slade School of Fine Art in London prepared him for a long and successful career in advertising design after he settled in Canada in 1946. Soon after immigrating he connected with the young painters who were to form Painters Eleven and consequently established himself as an exhibiting artist. Whether in his earliest post-war paintings, his more mellow-hued works from the late 1950s or his images in all media from later periods, Mead’s palette is consistently strong and lively, as with the dominant hot yellow in this fine canvas from the late 1980s. While his earlier abstract works were more controlled and often included a suggestion of a horizon line for visual grounding, his mature paintings feature broad, open spaces populated by somewhat familiar shapes and a kind of personal graffiti that gracefully and playfully leads us through the image. Mead was skilled and confident enough to trust that we would find our way.
