The complete narrative of the Toronto years (1934-1945), before leaving Canada permanently for Detroit, Michigan in 1945, remains to be told. The Winnipeg years witnessed the creation of some of the most important, original art of the time in Canada. Winnipeg nurtured this young artist who penetrated beyond the surface of nature to the core, to the very momentum of life, melding consciousness and matter.
