Reflections: The Self-Portraits of Gerald Trottier

Text by Brenda Wallace 

Over a period of more than fifty years, Gerald Trottier has studied his reflection in a mirror in an attempt to capture the essence of his being. Published in conjunction with an exhibition held at the Ottawa Art Gallery in 2002, this publication presents a sampling of Trottier’s painted self potraits that convey a sense of both detachment and sensuality through the use of muted colours and opalescent tones. With full colour plates, and an essay by Brenda Wallace that situates Trottier within the development of key artists' organizations from the 1960s on, this exhibition catalogue explores a slice of Trottier’s larger oeuvre.
