Notes

Rita Letendre was born in Drummondville, QC in 1928. Her first official group show was in 1955 in Montreal alongside other artists. She began changing her style to a more geometric one, employing more structured colour fields, zones of energy, thus temporarily abandoning the purely instinctual approach. In the late 1950s she abandoned the confines of geometric works and began studying the ideas of Zen and Confucius; these ideas began to translate into her paintings characterized by lines and strokes in black and white. In 1964, her works became considerably simplified, more focused on geometric shapes and movement.By 1995 she worked in heavier oils again and controlled her compositions with brush, palette knife and her bare hands. Rita Letendre has continued to produce and show works created as recently as 2014. In 2017 her work was included in the exhibition, The Ornament of a House: Fifty Years of Collecting at the Burnaby Art Gallery.
