Horizontal bars of blue, maroon, cherry red, pink, lemon yellow, burnt orange and green communicate on a soaked sand colored ground of this diptych by Milly Ristvedt. The rhythm of the spaces between the short lengths of color creates a dialogue of movement that leads the eye upwards through the large picture plane. The title of the work Phoenix refers to classical Greek mythology, the bird that when it dies rises again from its ashes.

This painting was included in the exhibition catalogue Milly Ristvedt-Handerek: Paintings of a Decade (1979).

Ristvedt, RCA, began her career in Toronto in 1964 after studies with Takao Tanabe at the Vancouver School of Art. In Toronto, during the 1960s and 1970s, she was making and exhibiting large scale paintings alongside a small but defined group of non-figurative painters who, like Ristvedt, had planted roots in modernism.
