About the event


This exhibit showcases a collection of shapes and surfaces marked by grooves and etchings which are neither figurative nor purely abstract. Applied on a medium of canvas or wood, they are created from glues, mortars and pigments reworked in successive layers of sometimes opaque, sometimes transparent, acrylics. White borders are an integral part of these compositions which may make you reminiscent—vestiges of an ancient presence, a token of Time, a tracing of what once was. Further, these materials exhibit cracks and crevices that are as many marks of the impermanence and frailty of things, like weathered frescoes from a world passed, withered away—the erosion and erasure of things past.Les bordures blanches font partie de ces compositions parsemées de figures identifiables, dessinées dans la matière, signes qui témoignent d’un passage, vestiges d’une ancienne présence. Traces de ce qui a été. Mais la matière de ces compositions est également lézardée et crevassée. Présence de lésions qui disent la fragilité, témoins d’une érosion des formes, de la dégradation d’un monde qui s’écaille à l’instar de ces fresques antiques qui se sont effritées. Effacement de ce qui a été.
