Geometric Abstract 1951

Tinning lived in Montreal during a period of artistic ferment in French-Canada (“Les Automatistes” and the “Refus Global”). Encouraged by this freedom of expression Tinning turned to Geometric Abstraction. Like music that conveys emotions without a real observable form this genre was a natural evolution of Tinning’s artistic development as it combined his love of art and music.
