Oeuvres sur papier
September 9 - October 7, 2006
Galerie Trois Points inaugurates in September a new room exclusively dedicated to works on paper. A vast selection of engravings and drawings produced by the gallery’s artists will be presented alternately throughout the year. The diversity of prints and drawings will occupy a privileged place of diffusion, while completing the regular programming.
A newcomer to Galerie Trois Points, Julie Voyce has exhibited solo and in groups across Canada since the 1980s. Inspired by both the daily and her muse, Dr. Seuss (The Cat in the Hat, The Grinch), she began her work initially with an analytical treatment of color, before introducing graphic signs. It transforms these signs, like the point of printing, to divert them from their meaning and so that the form becomes the subject of the work itself. Recently, Julie Voyce exhibited her works in New York, Vancouver and Toronto, where she currently resides.
Winner of the Monique and Robert Parizeau Foundation Prize in 2003, Elmyna Bouchard exhibits her work for the first time at Galerie Trois Points. In its intaglio engravings, the stripping and deconstruction of the signs leave only details that make us perceive the recognizable elements. His universe of spontaneous features and the candor of graphic design exude a playful and disturbing poetry.
For his part, Clint Griffin continues his work from discarded photographs that he recovers and transforms. He deconstructs these images and appropriates them by integrating them into his evocative compositions. Recycled photographs are diverted from their original nature and redefined by the artist into more universal imagery. Galerie Trois Points will present a solo exhibition of the artist from October 14th.
Montreal artist Nathalie Grimard continues her approach to sleep and the dreamlike elements they inhabit. In her most recent works, where she handles perforation and embroidery of silver thread, the representations symbolized by the bird are substituted for the dreamer. Nathalie Grimard holds a Master’s degree in Fine Arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal and has been exhibiting at Galerie Trois Points since 1995.
