I am saddened to announce that David Bolduc has died. He was 64 years of age, and died following a short and extremely courageous battle with cancer. He continued painting through it all, producing an entirely new body of work for an extraordinary show at Christopher Cutts Gallery just 3 months ago. His paintings contained an enormous energy and life force, as if channeling the very essence and fire of his soul. Working with David last year for the exhibition of new works he so generously created for my small gallery was a true privilege.
In 2006, Linda Corbett recorded a series of videotaped interviews with David. They are available to be viewed on line, courtesy of the Centre for Contemporary Canadian Art Database Project. How fortunate we are to have this important documentary record of a significant painter, poet and raconteur. He will be missed.
