Using memory rather than on-site sketches or photographs of Northern Ontario, the American Southwest and Europe, Marchessault visually distills his experiences to create ethereal landscapes. His work focuses on various states of nature and captures the sense of losing oneself in deserts, mountains and open plains.Estimate: $2,000–4,000
