It’s interesting to be able to view this wide selection of abstract art alongside a brief history of the development of abstract artwork in Canada. The online gallery serves not just as a repository of images, but as a thoughtful, educational monument to the unique qualities and important figures of Canadian abstract art.

It’s also interesting to view Tycho’s own work in such a well-developed context. The artist’s works are unique and specific to a contemporary time period, yet as with many works of pure abstraction, could be at home among peers from nearly any era.
