Group Show, Galerie de Bellefeuille

From March 12 to 23, I will be part of a group show on landscape painting at Galerie de Bellefeuille, in Montreal. For this specific occasion, I have completed three large paintings pursuing my mountainscape series. The physicality of the paint is particularly important in these works due to their scale and treatment. Of course these images will only give you a small hint of their reality. I keep cursing against reproductions and their impossibility to convey what a painting is really about, but deep down I think it is a great thing a painting remains a unique object that has to be experienced in the flesh. Click on the images to have a better idea...
