Biography

Harold Klunder

Harold Klunder was born in 1943 in Deventer, The Netherlands. In 1952 he immigrated to Canada with his family. He received his advanced education at Central Technical School in Toronto where he studied art under Canadian artists Doris McCarthy, Charles Goldhammer, and Virginia Luz.

Klunder’s practice reflects a diversity of interests including painting, printmaking, photography, performance and improvisational music.

Since becoming a full-time painter in 1970, Harold Klunder’s work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions across North America, Europe, Asia and South America.

His work is represented in public and private collections across Canada and abroad, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Musee d’art contemporain de Montreal.

Klunder is one of Canada’s most acclaimed painters. He is well known for his richly textured, complex abstract canvases that are built up slowly over time. Klunder explores his surrounding world through lush colours and organic shapes. Klunder currently resides in Montreal and maintains a studio in Flesherton, ON.

Harold Klunder Amorpous Amoebae

James D. Campbell & Forward by Victoria LeBlanc

Centre des arts visuals, Galerie McClure, Montreal

May 2007

78 pages, 50 colour illustrations, 10 ½ x 8 ½ inch softcover

$30.00

This monograph offers a critical and biographical study of Canadian visual artist, Harold Klunder, focusing most specifically on paintings created between 1995 and 2007. Fifty colour images of artworks and documentary shots of the artist in his studio accompany the text. A discussion of Harold Klunder's ambiguous position between abstraction and figuration, a brief history of his print-making, as well as an analysis of the artist's compositional methodologies using the metaphor of the children's string game - cat's cradle - constitute the key themes of Campbell's text. This publication asserts Klunder's reputation as one of the country's most accomplished and respected painters. In English and French.
