“Creativity is the greatest form of rebellion in this world.” – Anonymous.
From this assertion stems the designation of the artworks produced by Nathalie Plourde and Alain Cossette collectively known as “Rebellion”.
On the one hand, we have the motor vehicle body repairer, magician painter and mechanic totally invested in the repair, alteration and total reconstruction of antique motorcycles. Alain Cossette has more than 20 years of experience under his belt. He is credited with skillful restauration works on vintage models today considered more than prestigious. His work has been praised by the top connoisseurs and has allowed him to win contracts from first-rate specialized workshops. On the other hand, Nathalie Plourde has a master’s degree in bio-agronomy. She still works as project leader in this field, which provides a substantial source of revenue for the smooth running of the household while allowing her the freedom to create. She also has a diploma in graphic design; studies she considered as most liberating since colours, images and words have always inspired and motivated her. Hence, she has known the grind of page layouts and weighing the value of words. Nathalie is well aware of the effects of colour and of the spacing required for an image to radiate. She is a perfectionist. Nothing escapes her. She either loves or discards. So does the “man of her life” in regards to works created in tandem.Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte. Subscribe to our Website content to read more

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

“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.Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte.

Moving on from looking at the past to inspiring the future The Tate Modern in London is showing Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs from April 17-September 7, 2014. When you look at the cut outs one of the questions you end up walking away with is whether or not there would have been a Pop Art explosion in the 1960‘s without the influence of Matisse’s work. Matisse worked on the cut-outs in his old age starting when he was 71, recovering from radical colon surgery and confined to either a wheelchair or bed. He couldn’t work at an easel but he could shape form and colour by using scissors, coloured paper and pins to attach them to the wall. Eventually Matisse would have an assistant pin the pieces of a work against the wall and finally they would be taken down and framed in glass. Matisse worked for the last 13 years of life on the cut-outs. There are 130 cut-outs in the show and some of them are very large.
