Randy Boissonnault with Janvier   Alex Janvier artwork "Ceremony"

"My favourite piece in the Art Gallery of Alberta collection is Alex Janvier's The Ceremony. I love Janvier's work because he is bold and does not hold back from having frank conversations around tough issues facing our country. That is exactly the kind of art we need in an age of reconciliation. Janvier is able to convey many thoughts and emotions through is art. I find the simplicity and colours used in The Ceremony quite moving. "
