Boudro

When Art Goes ‘Pop’ and ‘Boom’

Pop Art

Boudro once painted the scenic splendours of Charlevoix. Today, it’s New York City and its cultural effervescence he is passionate about. More specifically about Pop Art, its iconic superheroes, comic strips and advertising logos.

Boudro was born in Sept-Îles in 1967, but has lived in Montreal since early childhood. Many years later, he set-up his studio on the island’s South-Shore. From there, his works travel all around the world.

Working part time as a tourist guide during the 1980s, while studying in industrial design, is what led him to relish the visual ebullience of Times Square’s advertising billboards. Amazed by the Cartesian plane of the Big Apple, with its straight streets running at right angles, the dynamic visual experience made him appreciate the harmony and equilibrium of various juxtapositions of symbols and logos arranged to form a mosaic with a central target, shoutout to Jasper Johns, that catches the spectator’s eye. Hence his works are highly expressive. Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte. Subscribe to our Website content to read more

Hélène Laplante

A Natural Presence

Forms, Volume and Space

Artist Hélène Laplante’s animal sculptures are not mere portrayals of their flesh and hair counterparts. Made of white resin with vaporous outlines, they evoke their furtive, almost ghostly presence in wild surroundings that are their natural habitats. The multidisciplinary artist thus seeks to give expression to the animal spirit, through the use of inert material.

“Before judging a painting, seek to understand what the artist wished to express and do not condemn him for the sacrifices he had to make to better render his thought. Ingenuity consists mainly in daring to put forth the necessary efforts, however great they may be.”– Anatole France.

After studies in graphic design, at a time when everything was done by hand, and a fifteen years career of sustained efforts that produced such prestigious logos as Adidas and SNC Lavalin, came the era of digital technology and the infamous Photoshop software which required further training in order to stay abreast of the competition.

The Many Faces

of Dansereau

Great Encounter

People should learn to see things for themselves and not take advice. – Renoir

Defending the creations of a painter’s unfettered imagination is a freedom some are still reluctant to embrace. Yet, the irrational osmosis between art and life, the lyrical outpourings, the intuition of mystery and the unforeseen discoveries, allow the greatest possible enrichment of the painting as a whole, thus revealing the inner core of its creator.
