Membre de Xylon international, Xylon-Québec est une association professionnelle d'artistes graveurs sur bois qui agit à titre d'éditeur, de diffuseur et vise à stimuler la recherche, la création et la promotion d'œuvres liées à la gravure en relief.

Dès 1979 des artistes graveurs manifestent le besoin de se greffer à Xylon international qui souhaite et favorise la création de sections nationales. En 1985, Xylon-Québec (Canada) devient officiellement une de ces sections. Depuis, le groupe se manifeste régulièrement en éditant des livres d’artistes et en organisant des expositions, souvent itinérantes, en vue de faire connaître la gravure en relief ainsi que les artistes qui la pratiquent.

biography

Jean-Paul Riopelle was bom in Montreal in 1923. After studying al the École Polytechnique and the Montreal Fumiture School, he joined the Automatistes group alongside Paul-Émile Borduas and co-signed the Refus global in 1948. That same year, he moved to Paris where he lived for many years.

ln the early 1950s his large mosaic paintings painted with a spatula earned him a resounding success. From then on, the artist will not cease to accumulate the marks of recognition: in addition to several prestigious prizes, several museums dedicate him great retrospective exhibitions as of 1967. The considerable work of Jean-Paul Riopelle counts paintings, drawings, sculptures and engravings. Jean-Paul Riopelle died in Isle-aux-Grues, Quebec, in 2002.

Feeling of lightness exhibition

My production is the result of a new, important investigation of different pictorial and graphic process in relation to silk-screen. With the objective of creating a fusion among three field of creation (silkscreen, drawing and painting) I wanted to renew my approach to silkscreen by opening up further possibilities in the medium. No longer only a silkscreen, each print becomes a mono-print. Each work on paper is unique, but the composition of each piece is constructed with the multiplicity of process that printmaking offers.

I create different models using the processes of painting, drawing and silk-screen itself. Each universe is a model for other and vice versa. It is, in fact, a co-existence among painting and drawing with silk-screen. As the three processes court and intermingle, the work is built through a series of transformative encounters among the different techniques. When seeing the piece, one is struck by the layering of transparent spots and the multiplicity of graphic marks. One imagines the creative process that lies inside the movement, the moments and the possibilities of my physical actions and thoughts within in the interior of space of the paper or the support of the work itself. One imagines the work in studio that requires a strong and dynamic physical gesture. By superposing many layers at a time (as many as ten screens at once) I always works on many works at the same time. While offering a lot of visual information, these last work still represent a feeling of lightness, a sensation of floating. Each decision made during the making of work is geared to create this illusion. Each piece presents a space, a territory where one can circulate in the foreground and  in the background, either by the superposition of layers, or by the choice of colours, or by the delicacy of drawing or by the scale of the large format. The organization and the presentation of works in the gallery are also taken into consideration, in order to accentuate the effect of a feeling of lightness, a sensation of floating.

Passage vers l’humanité Exhibition

The multidisciplinary artist Stella Pace delvesinto the notions of identity and belongingthroughthe theme of passage, notions that are dear to her. The exhibition is therefore significant and important: several new large formats will be presented. 

Dedicated to printed art, the exhibition Passage vers l’humanité reveals several facets of it: carborundum engravings, in particular, a series of small formats printed on mylar mounted on paper, mixed works combining collage, engraving and jute and others with collages on Japanese paper.  Primitive works from the point of view of form language, they embodynaivety and we discover in this joyful humanity, an aesthetic that is reminiscent of Africa.

The artist actively explores the clear shape, through the economy of coating of material and the addition of successive layers of raw materials. Stella Pace counterbalances the deep blacks and the smooth and coarse textures by a more sumptuous ochre palette, enhancing the overall effect. Passage vers l’humanitéalso includes ceramic sculptures. This combination of three-dimensional pieces and two-dimensional works creates an aesthetic tension with simplicity. Among the various components of this dynamic work, Passage vers l’humanité is nothing but captivating.

There are no translations available

Née en 1981, Violaine Fayolle, artiste morbihannaise, s’engage en 2009 dans la gravure sur bois. Après un travail sur plusieurs séries autour du monstrueux et de la norme, elle crée en mars 2014 une nouvelle espèce d’oiseaux hybrides : les désailés. Il s’agit d’oiseaux possédant des ailes mais elles leur sont malheureusement inefficaces pour le vol. 

Ces drôles d’oiseaux, privés d’une partie de leur nature, doivent alors trouver un autre sens à leur vie. Métaphores des humains parfois désorientés face aux mutations du monde contemporain, les désailés naissent de croquis naturalistes réalisés dans ses carnets de dessins à partir de matériaux divers récoltés çà et là et d’objets naturels d’origine végétale, animale ou minérale. Leur habitat est la pénombre, le noir de l’encre ou encore une forêt étrange dans laquelle ils errent. 

Violaine Fayolle participe à des expositions collectives et biennales de gravures en France, à Toulouse ou Morhange ; elle intervient auprès de scolaires dans le cadre de résidences, au lycée d’Hennebont et à l’école du Manio ou encore lors de stages de xylo et linogravure, au Musée de Pont-Aven par exemple. 

Elle expose dans le Morbihan, au Moulin de Pen Castel à Arzon ainsi qu’à l’artothèque d’Hennebont, à Binic-sur-mer (février 2019). Cette année, certaines de ses gravures ont été présentées à la Biennale Internationale de Gravure Livio Abramo au Brésil, et seront exposées au musée de la xylogravure à Campos de Jordão entre juin et août. Tout le travail sur les Désailés fera l’objet d’une exposition personnelle à la Maison Tessier-dit-Laplante à Québec (mi-mai à fin août 2019).

RATKIND Exhibition

woodcut printing laser engrave

Biography

Bonnie Baxter was born in Texarkana Texas and has had a studio and residence in Val-David, Québec since 1972. She is a interdisciplinary artist who has maintained an extensive exhibition record both nationally and internationally for more than 4 decades. Her work ranges from Public-Art installations to large-scale pieces in Print Media, video projection and Sculpture.

In 1982 she founded the custom print studio the Atelier du Scarabée in the mountain village of Val-David, Québec. At the Atelier she collaborated and produced etchings, relief prints, and screen-prints for a select group of artists including the full corpus of etchings for Jean Paul Riopelle over a 10 year period. In 2005 The Musée d'art contemporain des Laurentides presented Rewind, a 10 year survey of Baxter’s work; the exhibition then traveled across Canada and the USA. In the same year this artistic achievement was awarded the Prix à la création artistique from Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, in the context of the Grands Prix de la culture des Laurentides. Her third survey exhibition with The MAC LAU. Musée d'art contemporain des Laurentides,. Bonnie Baxter : Présent | Passé | Futur (until January 27, 2019) includes works from her series Jane’s Journey, The Tragic and Premature Death of Jane, and RatKind including an extensive site specific installation in downtown Saint-Jérôme’s business district (330 Rue Saint-Georges).

Her dedication to community engagement in the arts and her contributions as an educator were acknowledged in 2016 when she was awarded the President’s Excellence in Teaching award from Concordia University and again in 2017 when she was awarded the Charles Biddle Prize by The Minister of Immigration, Diversity, Inclusion and Culture for All. In 2018 she received a lifetime achievement award, the Prix les Grands Soleils from Le Conseil de la cultures des Laurentides (Québec).

Artist’s statement

I believe in bold colours and strong images made subtle through layers of content, drawing from past, present and imagined futures. I would rather see these layers as opportunities, evidence of the simultaneity, synchronicity, serendipity that abounds in life. Most of my practice has been para-autobiographical, applying the freeing premise of a parallel self to pull tendrils of influence toward my work, absorbing the rich, varied, beautiful and absurd into some coherent narrative, trying to make sense of my world.

For “RatKind,” my most recent series, photography and video sessions were taken over the summer in my garden, a secluded Val-David setting. Artists/actors, friends and others wearing a rat mask were given broad parameters for poses and actions, all drawing from personal experience in response to the notion of "trouble in paradise." Regular digital and infrared cameras were used as well as drone photography. Along with digital prints I created a series of woodcut prints using laser engraving technology.

“RatKind” is a dystopian, yet hopeful, series that recognizes the need for human-kind to overcome its fears and prejudices in order to move towards a more inclusive, accepting society. It imagines a future in which alternative forms of community have arisen, inviting greater social diversity, welcoming all forms of intelligence as it strives towards a sustainable future and mourns the passing of an almost incomprehensible past.

Exposition Les sporadiques

Cette exposition consiste en un choix d’estampes réalisées au cours des 40 dernières années. Il ne s’agit nullement d’une rétrospective, mais d’un plaisir à partager autour d’œuvres que j’affectionne particulièrement. Chose étrange, j’ai toujours eu un faible pour ma première gravure réalisée en 1978 dans un cours d’Antoine Pentch.

Depuis lors, malgré le côté sporadique de ma pratique, j’y retrouve toujours le même engouement. Je réalise que cet art a toujours été un point d’appui pour ma peinture et une manière parallèle au travail de la main.

Bio abrégée

Né à Thetford Mines en 1956, Marc Garneau vit et travaille à Montréal. Depuis plus de 40 ans, il pratique l’estampe et la peinture. Actif sur la scène artistique, ses œuvres ont été montrées dans près de 60 expositions individuelles. En 1997, il a gagné le Grand Prix de la Biennale de dessin, de l’estampe et du papier matière du Québec (Alma).

Opening Thursday, September 13th at 17:30
Exhibition of Tuesday, September 11th to Saturday, October 13, 2018

Artist’s statement

About my « Iconography » I don’t want to narrate stories. This way of behave : « Telling stories » is coming from Cinematographic and literature fields, I'm mostly inspired by poetry and music, because those are abstracts arts, but never from literature,, I don’t act as a "narrative", my intuition and my imagination compose the picture and I leave spectators free to behold, to take ownership of the symbols and to let their sensibility and their emotion interact with their inwardness. What interests me first and foremost is the environmental aspect; all that hurts the Earth, our planet, deeply concerns me, as well as all those who live on it, fishes, birds, animals, ect.. For example, "the ephemeral travel" tells us that there is a peril on sea, we must go somewhere else ... In "Secret Complicity": the man is chidren in a "nautilus" to gain fish's trust in order to enter into dialogue with him. Through these poetic associations, I highlights on stage "symbols" that enter into dialogue with elements of our environment. Man is at the center of the Earth, he is the wizard. In my intellectual current I am closer to "surrealism" than social realism. The fish has a very beautiful plastic in its visual appearance, what concerns me above all in ART, it’s the beauty, and it’s why I have decided to create in « plastic arts», especially engraving : the mezzotint.

Michel Lancelot

From Tuesday, May 22 to Saturday, June 23, 2018

Opening Friday, May 25 at 17:30

There are no translations available.

Exposition

Une inscription, un graphe dans les formes de la temporalité : telle pourrait être une caractérisation de l’œuvre de Michel Lancelot. Cela tient d’abord à la maîtrise éclairée de différentes techniques : aquatinte, lithographie, eau-forte, pratiques qui s’entrecroisent, qui s’éclairent et fournissent d’inépuisables possibles. Au fil d’une vie d’expérimentation et de travail, les apprentissages se transforment en une tranquille assurance qui permet d’ouvrir d’autres chemins pour la création. L’artiste fût aussi enseignant, et cette profession qui exprime entre autres la volonté d’être un passeur, de transmettre un savoir qui est surtout un héritage, confère aussi une texture particulière à la recherche artistique. Le versant intuitif, la spontanéité du geste doit se décomposer pour être saisie; à la limite, il faut revenir à l’aube des apprentissages pour les re-connaître. Cette dichotomie de l’analyse et de l’intuition forme le pôle dynamique dans lequel, aujourd’hui affranchi de l’enseignement, il se meut encore.

Une temporalité qui est aussi conservation et valorisation, car Michel Lancelot investit dans ses récents travaux des cartes géographiques tirées de vieux almanachs, des gravures d’Hokusai extirpées de beaux livres sur l’art, des trouvailles en grand format aux couleurs surannées. Ces supports sur lesquels s’effectue le travail sont choisis non seulement pour les qualités inhérentes à la matière, mais aussi et surtout pour la beauté des gravures, du dessin, des coloris et des moments de l’histoire qu’ils représentent. L’intervention n’est jamais passéiste, ni la création aliénée, il s’agit plutôt d’un hommage et d’une façon de créer un dialogue fécond entre l’artiste et cette riche matière venue du passé.

Michel Lancelot pose sur cela des formes végétales, animales et humanoïdes qui forment des compositions où l’équilibre et la cohérence sont constants. Il y a parfois émergence d’un petit théâtre, parfois aussi quelques traits dessinent-ils un visage, ébauchent un sourire narquois, tracent un œil malicieux, toutefois la figuration ne porte pas un message, demeurant lié à des réquisits qui font plutôt échos à l’abstraction géométrique. Sous l’encre noire comme sous les carmins, citrons ou azur, il est possible de distinguer les fonds ouvragés, les formes créées par l’artiste ouvrent là-dessus des fenêtres à ces anciennes harmonies. Ce sont les signes d’une appréciation très sentie envers des qualités de savoir-faire et de remarquables ouvrages du passé. Par ailleurs, une vie bien réelle et une ironie bienveillante imprègnent ce travail, et cela laisse l’impression d’une sorte d’allégresse, d’une célébration esthétique épurée de contenu doctrinal.

Voici une mince inscription dans le corps même de la démarche de l’artiste, un temps saisi dans l’ensemble d’un travail de création foisonnant qui s’étend maintenant sur des décennies. Ce qui était est encore et demeurera : une recherche heureusement sans fin poussée toujours plus avant par une passion pour les techniques de gravure, de dessin, de peinture. Un dialogue médiatisé par des créatures et des créations que l’on reconnaît immédiatement; elles composent le délicat paraphe de Michel Lancelot dans l’histoire de l’art.

Janne Laine

From Friday, April 13 to Saturday, May 12, 2018

Opening Friday, April 13 at 17:30



Within the framework of its partnership with the Biennale internationale d’estampe contemporaine de Trois-Rivières (BIECTR), the Atelier-Galerie A. Piroir takes great pleasure in welcoming the Finnish artist Janne Laine as artist-in-residence, as well as for solo exhibition.

Biography

Janne Laine ( b. 1970 works and lives in Tampere, Finland ) has depicted landscapes for more than twenty years. He has an ability to present the landscape as a subject, which requires no speculation on the original location nor any evaluation of its authenticity. They are universal pictures, in which the landscape is shrouded beyond recognition.

Laine’s prints combine photography and printmaking. He travels around the world collecting material with his camera and then those results he transfers into etchings by heliogravure. The only manipulation of the image happens in the etching tray. Colors are added from aquatint plates when needed and occasionally with chine-collé. Laine has been working as an Art Printer over 25 years in Graphic Workshop Himmelblau and as a Master Printer since 2006 although recent years he’s been concentrated on his own Print Studio in Tampere. In 2009 he got a 5-year State Grant from the State of Finland. He has been awarded over 20 grants from various councils and foundations in Finland.

Laine had a retrospective exhibition at the Tampere Museum of Art in 2015 and he has had over 50 private exhibitions in Finland, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Canada, Belgium and Korea. He has participated in numerous collective and group exhibitions in over 40 countries. The artist’s works have been awarded in Biennials and Triennials in Bulgaria, Spain, Brazil, Korea, Japan, Canada, Estonia, Germany and Finland. He won the Banque Nationale Prize at the fifth Biennale internationale d’estampe contemporaine de Trois-Rivière (BIECTR). His prints appear in more than thirty different public collections worldwide and he has participated Artist in Residencies in Akureyri and Siglufjördur; Iceland, Paris; France, Budapest; Hungary and New York; USA.

Biography


Born in Paris in 1949,  Julius Baltazar was noticed in his youth by Salvador Dali who took the budding artist under his wing and encouraged him to pursue his artistic career.
The works of Julius Baltazar, a mix of printmaking and painting, usually feature elements of intaglio printing, ink drawing and Arlequin pencil. A deep interest in literature led the artist to illustrate over three hundred  works of poetry. The artist's work is featured in many important public collections in Canada, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Japan and France.

Artist’s statement

I work almost exclusively with the dry point technique which allows me to draw directly onto copper or zinc plates. Most of my work I have printed myself.

Although I have occasionally explored the theme of nature in my work - I am fascinated by birds and fish - my chief concern has always been the human body, in particular the portrait.

This exhibition at the Atelier-Galerie Alain Piroir is the first time my work is presented in Montreal since 1992 and I have chosen a variety of work executed over the past ten years for the occasion.

David Maes

Biography

Originally from Montreal, I have been living in Europe since 1987, primarily in France. I was introduced to printmaking by Louis-Pierre Bougie in 1988 and I worked at the Atelier Lacourière-Frélaut (Paris) until my departure for the Casa de Velazquez (Madrid) in 1992 where I spent two years thanks to a grant from the Académie des beaux-arts. This period in Spain exposed me to an entirely new culture and gave me the opportunity to meet and work with numerous Spanish printmakers. I returned to France in 1994 and since then I have lived in Paris in the north and the area around Nîmes in the south.

Exposition Image de pacotille et Nos éthos

«La société actuelle subit un ''vacarme sexuel'' assourdissant ainsi qu'une banalisation de la pornographie. L'époque n'est plus à la suggestion mais à l'exhibition. D'où l'apparition du terme ''hypersexualisation''.

J’ai photographié ma fille de 9 ans vêtue de sous-vêtements féminins et d’un masque à gaz. Afin de la protéger de la pornographisation, se définissant comme le «recyclage d’archétypes pornographiques dans la culture», je lui fais porter ce masque, symbole d’une urgente protection contre cette banalisation médiatique de la sexualité et ce phénomène social qui s’insère dans l’espace public à notre insu.

Selon la sexologue Francine Duquet, «on fait porter à des enfants un potentiel de séduction sexuelle et érotique qu’elles n’ont pas le moyen de gérer».

Dans ce contexte, faire porter le masque à gaz à ma fille est un moyen pour moi, en tant que mère, femme et artiste, de dénoncer cet excès pernicieux.

La série Nos éthos est la trace laissée par des inconnus pris en photo au hasard dans la rue, dans une attitude neutre. C’est la découverte d’une nature inattendue de l'être humain sur des hommes et des femmes; des personnes dans une détresse tranquille, dont les histoires, parfois hasardeuses, étaient inexorablement liées à leur passé; une résilience inhérente à leur vécu et à leur quotidien.

L'artiste est un médiateur donnant une visibilité à des individus généralement condamnés à l'invisibilité. L'artiste est un «porte-parole»: il met sa vision du monde à vue de tous. La rencontre d'individus et s'arrêter aléatoirement devant telle ou telle personne, telle est la notion de médiateur dans une société qui ne voit plus ces exclus.


Bio abrégée

Présentement à la maîtrise en art, Valérie Guimond détient un baccalauréat en arts visuels de l’Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières où elle y travaille comme chargée de cours et technicienne en estampe (sérigraphie et gravure). Membre de l’Atelier Presse Papier de Trois-Rivières depuis 2002, elle a donné plusieurs conférences et workshop sur l’estampe, entres autres au Brésil, au Mexique ainsi qu’en Belgique. Ses œuvres ont été présentées dans plusieurs biennales nationales et l’internationales. Elle exposera prochainement son travail à l’Atelier Silex à Trois-Rivières lors de la 10e Biennale internationale d’estampe contemporaine de Trois-Rivières en juin 2017.

Le travail de Valérie Guimond s’exprime principalement autour du sentiment d’étouffement et de resserrement de notre propre corps. Un moi intérieur qui se construit à partir des sensations éprouvées, des expériences vécues et de séries d'identifications. Il est à la fois le lieu de l'identité personnelle, du contrôle du comportement, du rapport aux autres et de la confrontation entre la réalité extérieure, les normes morales et sociales et les désirs inconscients.

L’hypersexualisation des jeunes filles, l’image du corps de la femme et le regard des autres sur les exclus de notre société sont les principaux sujets des œuvres récentes de Valérie Guimond dans cette exposition.

Exposition habiter le monde

Notes de Gabrielle Desgagné-Duclos

Visible un mois durant à partir de février 2017, Habiter le monde constitue pour la sculpteur, peintre et graveur Stella Pace une seconde occasion depuis l’exposition Têtes en devenir (2009) de présenter son travail en estampe à l’Atelier-Galerie A. Piroir. L’artiste y propose un corpus inédit qui regroupe deux œuvres grand format — une longue frise monochromatique noire sur papier japon et un dessin au bâton à l’huile et crayon de plomb — ainsi qu’un diptyque mélangeant estampe, collage et peinture et plusieurs pièces d’une série de petites collagraphies et pastel gras sur papier noir.

À huit étages au-dessus de la rue, bien en retrait du mouvement qui anime les espaces de diffusion situés en bas, avenues Casgrain et de Gaspé, l’Atelier-Galerie A. Piroir offre aux artistes en estampe actuelle un cadre unique d’exposition. Accrochées dans l’espace même de travail des maîtres graveurs et des artistes qui fréquentent l’atelier, les œuvres s’y regardent en contexte, dans un côtoiement bienvenu avec les presses. Lieu de création et d’apprentissage, l’Atelier-Galerie est avant tout un espace vivant, habité, qui incarne bien l’approche artistique de Stella Pace, à l’opposé de la culture des apparences, honnête, ancré dans le faire et le senti.

L’exposition donne à voir le développement récent du travail sur papier de Stella Pace, qui paraît s’accomplir en cohérence avec sa production sculpturale antérieure, fortement marquée par la série sur bases de béton Peoples (2000-2015). Par la répétition d’un motif — le plus souvent forme humaine — à chaque fois singularisé par son exécution automatiste, l’effet d’accumulation expose, pour ainsi dire, la condition individuelle de l’existence humaine. Accomplissant son travail plastique par séries, l’artiste accumule, sélectionne, reprend et retravaille les motifs, les idées, les techniques ou les œuvres elles-mêmes, réalisant de la sorte une œuvre-trace où les pièces transpirent l’énergie investie dans leur création.

Depuis une dizaine d’années, le travail que Stella Pace consacre à l’estampe, bien qu’il s’accompagne du ralentissement de sa production en sculpture, conserve cet intérêt pour les méthodes déjà employées du collage et de l’assemblage. L’artiste approche couramment l’élément d’impression comme une œuvre en soi (et l’expose parfois comme telle, avec ou sans altération). Ses tirages, quant à eux, surtout des éditions limitées, sont le plus souvent appelés à devenir la matière de base pour un nouveau travail de construction, pictural ou installatif. Ainsi, l’impression est loin d’être une finalité pour Stella Pace, qui place le processus même de l’estampe au centre d’une exploration sculpturale.

Récemment, une résidence de formation à l’Atelier Graff lui a aussi donné envie d’investiguer davantage les possibilités du numérique — ce dont témoigne l’œuvre Un monde en soi (2016), une composition numérique réalisée en collaboration avec Claude Fortaich et imprimée en un seul exemplaire sur papier d’Arches. Fruit d’un travail considérable, l’œuvre réunit, dans une grille de plus de deux mètres de longueur, 154 estampes individuelles représentants des visages sombres, sur lesquels l’artiste est intervenue au bâton à l’huile rouge écarlate comme pour les annoter, en souligner les traits d’expression ou en matérialiser la force vitale1.

Hypnotique, Un monde en soi découle d’une approche plus systématique de la composition all over, plus méthodique que ce à quoi l’artiste nous a surtout habitué, à l’exemple du grand dessin Oppression exposé chez Piroir. Ces deux œuvres, grille ordonnée et réseau de lignes chaotique, engagent cependant à une conception de l’espace semblable, qui n’est pas sans rappeler les compositions plurifocales de Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) — un plasticien que l’artiste affectionne et dont l’œuvre tardive s’organise en phases selon un traitement de plus en plus nihiliste de l’espace de représentation, avec les « psycho-sites », les « sites aléatoires », les « mires » et les « non-lieux ».

Qu’ils évoluent dans un espace monochromatique noir, flottent sur le blanc du papier sali par les essuyages de la plaque d’impression, ou dans un enchevêtrement de lignes qui rapproche dans une même image des scènes éloignées, les personnages de Stella Pace habitent des paysages évanescents, emplis des vertiges que nous y projetons. Ces « réfugiés » appartiennent au monde et le monde fait partie d’eux ; lorsqu’ils ne sont pas carrément construits de béton, de fer et de paille, ils ont sur papier cette même apparence d’être faits de la matière du monde, d’être formés de la terre.

Dans un langage plastique toujours empreint de primitivisme, Habiter le monde permet à Stella Pace de poursuivre sa méditation autour de la figure humaine et de la thématique migratoire, en ajoutant à son lexique iconographique l’image de la maison — motif nouveau qui fait ici une apparition toute naturelle. Rappelant les constructions traditionnelles des civilisations anciennes, le carré simple de chacune est un univers clos à quatre dimensions, modelé à l’image de celui qui y a vécu. Aussi distinctes les unes des autres que les êtres traversant les paysages incertains de ses œuvres, ces maisons incarnent la fixation spatiale, l’ancrage ; le refuge que l’on a dû abandonner et qu’il nous faut retrouver afin de quitter l’errance et habiter le monde.

1 Simultanément à l’exposition chez Piroir, Un monde en soi et quelques autres pièces récentes sont exposées au centre d’artistes en art imprimé Zocalo. Membre associée de Zocalo, Stella Pace y a effectué un séjour de résidence en 2012. Elle a depuis participé à plusieurs expositions collectives du centre, ainsi qu’à deux projets de livres d’artistes.

Hélène latulippe

Tuesday September 6 to Saturday 15 october, 2016
Opening Thursday, September 8 at 17:30


Within the framework of its partnership with the Biennale internationale d’estampe contemporaine de Trois-Rivières (BIECTR), the Atelier-Galerie A. Piroir takes great pleasure in welcoming the Quebec artist Hélène Latulippe as artist-in-residence, as well as for solo exhibition.

Exposition Portées d’ombres ii

Ms Latulippe, was selected from amongst the artists exhibiting of the 9th BIECTR. Her solo exhibition will be held from September 6 to October 15, 2016 at the Atelier-Galerie A. Piroir. This exhition, which follows on from artist’s residency on May, 2016, will give the Montreal public the opportunity to discover a more complete body of the artist’s work and broaden the reach of the BIECTR.

Her constant exploration of the limits of printmaking, her marriage of various materials seen in her use of textiles, papers and in her installation works, has inspired to choose Hélène Latulippe. This event fits well with the common goals of BIECTR and AGAP, to promote the renewal and development of contemporary.

Exhibition Signes de l'étant (recent prints)

“Michel Savage’s art practice therefore acts as a spool onto which all the collected experiences are wound. In just a moment… a thread breaks… an incident brings about a rupture… the breaking of a defined cycle changes the nature of things and facilitates the emergence, frame by frame, of an irrepressible need to speak up”.

Excerpt from the article Dans l’interstice du travail de l’œuvre, Hélène Poiré, Liaison, no. 98, 1998, p. 26-28.


Biography


Michel Savage holds a diploma from the University of Ottawa’s Department of Visual Arts, where he studied painting with Edmund Alleyn and Richard Gorman from 1972 to 1976. In 1982, he travelled, studied, and exhibited in Spain, where he met the Catalan artist Antoni Tàpies at his studio in Campins. His work of visual creation follows a path that privileges a symbolist poetry of the image. Through a phenomenological exploration of abstracted forms and colour, the artist seeks the shortest route between the emotion and the sign.

Since 1975, the artist has held numerous exhibitions at galleries as well as at several academic and cultural institutions. He has lived and worked in Montreal since 1983.

Biography

François Morelli was born in Montreal. He completed a BFA at Concordia University in 1975 concentrating on drawing. He lived in the New York area from 1981 to 1991, and received an MFA in installation and performance art from Rutgers University in 1983. He has taught in universities and art schools since 1980, has received numerous grants and has exhibited his work locally and internationally since 1976. He has been professor at Concordia University since 1996 and part of the Joyce Yahouda Gallery in Montreal since 2006. In 1993 he was awarded the prix d'Excellence by la Biennale de dessin et d'estampe d'Alma and in 2007 received the Prix Louis Comtois from the Conseil des arts de la Ville de Montréal.

He pursues a trans-disciplinary practice (in drawing, installation, performance, print media and sculpture) often questioning the status of an artwork through its creative process and its reception. He is interested in notions of passage, circulation and transformation. His art often echoes a past action or event while examining relationships between artists, society and contexts.

Exposition VUES DE L’ESPRIT - VUES DU CIEL

SITE WEB DE L'ARTISTE


Il n’est pas si loin le temps où les artistes concevaient leurs œuvres en faisant une osmose profonde entre esthétique et éthique. Ainsi du rapport qu’entretient Rutvanowska dans ses propres expériences liées aux religions et aux procédés techniques – des thèmes abordés, des lieux investis (Abbaye) ou de sa dernière production : gravures et livre d’artiste, en collaboration avec des écrivains sur la thématique des Péchés capitaux…

C’est notamment la position esthétique de l’artiste Jovhanna Rutvanowska, comme on peut s’en rendre compte par sa peinture et la réflexion qu’elle a développé à partir de son expérience et de son oeuvre qui conjugue diverses techniques et divers supports -, une œuvre multidirectionnelle. Dans laquelle la sensualité et la poésie font totalement corps. Toute peinture véhicule des valeurs esthétiques et des images ancrées dans l’inconscient social qui contribuent à changer le regard du spectateur. L’esthétique permet de renouveler le champ de l’universalité des rapports des artistes aux formes de la cité.

Jovhanna Rutvanowska traverse ainsi tous ces courants à sa manière, en les réinterprétant à sa manière, en les actualisant, comme on peut s’en rendre compte.

« Nous cherchons l’ébauche du monde – cette ébauche c’est nous-mêmes. » Ecrivait Novalis.

biography

In1972 I began as an apprentice printmaker at La Guilde Graphique in Montreal. While there, the son of James Houston, the founder of the printmaking workshop in Cape Dorset, NWT, approached me to work as a printer/printmaker in the North. I didn't feel ready and so declined but the idea of working with the Inuit in the arts stayed with me. After years of persevering I got a chance in '94 to work in Cape Dorset at the behest of Terry Ryan, who at that time was the manager of the West Baffin Eskimo Co-op. It was a highlight of my career and it was an exhilarating experience to work face to face with some of the most renowned artists of our time. It felt like a 'coming out'!

But for all this, I had the sense that other Inuit communities were not being heard. So in 1999 I applied for and received funding from the Canadian Government's Millenium Fund to undertake a series of workshops in eight communities throughout the Territory of Nunavut. It became a personal 'walkabout' with the experience being both challenging and intense. I met some incredible people along the way, both young and old, whom I will forever hold dear.

This Collection of 8 sets of prints are the result of this undertaking...

exposition They Live

Pour Pierre Durette la notion de civilisation est un élément fondamental dans sa recherche artistique. Il a été longtemps inspiré par les encyclopédies qui renferment les connaissances acquises par les sociétés à une époque précise. Durant les dernières années, il a approfondi ses recherches autour des idées de l’archivage, de l’histoire et de la mémoire. L’idée de l’encyclopédie a fait son chemin et son travail actuel rappelle les capsules temporelles où une sélection d’artéfacts est rassemblée pour un futur indéterminé.

L’exposition They live présentée à l’Atelier-Galerie Alain Piroir regroupe un corpus d’œuvres réalisé dernièrement lors de résidences en arts d’impression. Elles se veulent une incursion dans un univers iconographique où chaque oeuvre peut être à la fois un objet de culte et une nomenclature d’une société présente, mais lointaine. La conquête de Mars est le motif de cette production visuel. Il en découle un questionnement sur la pérennité de nos civilisations. L’exposition nous propose la vision d’une nouvelle terre promise tout en faisant ressortir le côté primitif de la fuite et du fantasme. Ce qui semble être à première vue des fictions visuelles se retrouve à la limite entre un passé fragmenté et un futur anticipé.

Biography


Albert Dumouchel, painter, printmaker, teacher.
He was born at Salabery de Valleyfield April 15 1916.
He died at Saint-Antoine-sur-le-Richelieu January 17 1971.

Self thaught artist, he studied the basics of etching with James Lowe in Valleyfield. He will later work with the best Paris printers such as Leblanc and Desjobert.

He will first teach drawing at the Valleyfield Seminaire from 1936 to 1949 then drawing and engraving at l’École des arts graphiques de Montréal from 1942 to 1960.

In Montréal in 1945, he participated in the "cadavres exquis" experiments with Léon Bellefleur, Jean Benoit, Jean Léonard, Mimi Parent and Alfred Pellan, and, in 1947 and 1949, published 2 famous issues of Les Ateliers d'arts graphiques, the review of Montréal's École des arts graphiques. In 1948 he joined the free-art "Prisme d'yeux" group and later made contributions to the first publications of Roland Giguère's Éditions Erta. Between 1949 and 1954, his lithographs illustrated Giguère's Faire naître, Les Nuits abat-jour and Les Armes blanches. Giguère interested Dumouchel in the Cobra movement, and his

work appeared in the Revue internationale de l'art expérimental - Cobra (1954), and in Phases de l'art contemporain (1955), the review published by poet and surrealist critic Édouard Jaguer.

His work as an art teacher at the École des arts graphiques and the École des beaux-arts in Montréal until his death influenced several generations of artists. The Montréal Musée d'art contemporain held an exhibition of his engravings in 1974.

His works are in the greatest art collections as well in Canada as abroad.

exposition while i was walking


This series of work aims to look at the unseen or overlooked. Shadows and reflections on pavement after rain are one example of images that are around us but that we do not always see. Our choice to focus on one thing over another is fascinating to me. The question of how we choose where to look and what to look at is a focus of this work.

In the works ‘weather series’ Canadian weather maps are integrated into cloud formations. These formations show the highs, lows, and patterns of weather systems as well as explore the unseen elements at play in the sky. These works question how we experience our natural environments; how we hope to predict and understand the powers they hold.

In the past few years, her printmaking has included an integration of digital photographic means with traditional etching techniques, has inspired the AGAP. Her marriage of various techniques is precisely in line with the Atelier-Galerie A.Piroir’s mandate to promote contemporary printmakers.

exposition la vie est un rêve


I’m always looking for small things which noone else has noticed, which are hidden, invisible or unknown. I gather, examine, organise. I play with the appearances which have presented themselves to me and my pleasure is to bring them to the light of day. If the occasion presents itself, I tell their stories. Often, therefore, my work includes words, as text, as poetry, as title.

In the past few years, my printmaking has included an integration of digital photographic means with traditional etching techniques. This particular combination, to some extent, allows me to present the sensation of being immersed in a world which is rapidly moving all around me. I feel confronted by the its immense richness and also its inscrutability. The possibility of rapidly gathering numerous snapshots of any given subject gives me the impression of being able to more adequately participate in the « reality » at hand. Success is always short-lived and partial at best. Probably it is the futility of trying to bear witness to anything in the world that motivates me to continue. So, the changing apparences hold me on the path of trial and error and the restrictive means of metal, varnish, ink and paper keep me rooted in the studio.

The suite « Social Media : Out of the Box », of which seven etching have been shown at the BIETR 2013, tells about the many - faceted interface between the artwork and its public. For the art aficionado, it is lends itself to humorous interpretation.
The series of etchings I intend to work on during the AGAP residency in 2014 will be the continuation of a theme which first presented itself to me in 1964. Two boys searching for clams drew me into a magical moment and a black and white photograph resulted. Since then, the subject of people at the beach has become a collection of unfinished sketches which I have always looked for an opportunity to continue. The series is tentatively called « Life is a Dream » because my grasp of the dichotomy « consciousness – unconsciousness » gives prescience to the unconscious as a guiding force and this series of images could allow me to present, in a playful way, some mythic characters under a contemporary sky.

biography

Nancy Lambert studied printmaking at L’école des beaux-arts in the studio of Albert Dumouchel and later went on to work with several printmaking techniques in the studio of Yves Gaucher at Sir George Williams University. Following this she was a printmaker at Pierre Ayot’s studio, GRAFF. She holds a Master’s degree in Art Education and a PhD in philosophy from Concordia University. Now retired from the Université de Montréal where she was a Professor of art education for thirty years, she pursues her interest in printmaking and contributes regularly to local and international events and exhibitions.

My practice as an etcher and a printmaker allows me, to some extent, to give form to the sensation of being in a rapidly moving world which confronts me with its immense richness and also with its inscrutability. Thus, it is the appearances of the world which hold me to the path of trial and error and the restrictive means of metal, varnish, ink and paper which keep me rooted within the studio.

exposition espace et divagation


Par le biais du dessin et de l’art imprimé, je m’amuse à explorer différents traitements picturaux et spatiaux. Mon travail s’effectue de façon spontanée; les images se construisent progressivement, parfois avec l’amalgame des techniques utilisées et les accidents qui surviennent. Ces imprévus font parties intégrantes de mon processus car ils m’obligent à analyser constamment ce qui se propose, à jouer/déjouer. Je trace, imprime, découpe, accumule, juxtapose, multiplie et colore.

Mon environnement au quotidien est une prémices à ma pratique: les espaces, un mot, un objet, les gens, les sentiments, une tache sur un bout de papier, un motif ou une couleur sont autant d’éléments qui stimulent mes perceptions. Un ton ludique et loufoque prédomine dans mon travail. Je redéfini, réorganise, dénature et réinterprète.

bio abrégée

Andréanne Bouchard est originaire de Causapscal, petit village situé au cœur de la Vallée de la Matapédia. Bachelière en Arts visuels et médiatiques, sa pratique se défini à travers l’art imprimé, le dessin et le collage. Son travail a été présenté en 2013 lors de La Biennale internationale d’estampe contemporaine de Trois-Rivières. En 2012, une exposition solo, réalisée au Centre Elgar de L’île des Sœurs intitulée Chez-toi, chez-moi, quelque part, répertoriait un ensemble d’œuvres inspirées des lieux habités par l’artiste. Tout récemment elle proposait Champ de cornets, installation participative réalisée à Arprim lors de la Nuit Blanche à Montréal. Intéressée autant par l’œuvre picturale que par une approche plus démocratisée de l’édition, elle poursuit sa production en art imprimé à l’Atelier Graff depuis 2005.

Guillaume brisson-darveau

Exhibition Tuesday, April 8 to Saturday 7th June 2014.

Opening Thursday, April 10 at 17:30.



exhibition la méta-guerre des étoiles

Guillaume Brisson-Darveau uses silk screening, video, sculpture and installations to create colorful and playful works that also draw on the absurdities of western culture. Using found material as a starting point he transforms whatever he finds into motorized engines, disproportionate candy, missiles, and other objects all united by an esthetic inspired by video games. By aggrandizing these found objects, the artist is able to void them of their original meaning, evoking instead society’s interest and desire for overabundance, capitalism, and excess in the face of ever growing inequalities.

“La Méta-Guerre des étoiles” is composed of a series of prints referring to a child’s imagined world of his own immune system in peril. These prints show the imagined white blood cells as a powerful space army combating the intruder.

Biography

Guillaume Brisson-Darveau lives in Montreal and obtained a Masters of Fine Arts from Laval University in 2009. In January of this year he collaborated with Pascaline Knight on the project Le Grand Dérangement/The Big Clean-Up at Open Studio in Toronto. Later this year, he will also be showing solo works while doing a residency at the Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium thanks to the support of the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres of Quebec.

biography

George Visat first becomes aware of printamaking at the age of 14 when he becomes an apprentice to the revered Leon Isidore in Paris. A few years later he is linked to the surrealist movement, with whom he will work very closely all of his life. Considered one of the greatest and most influencial printers of the 20th century, Visat formed close friendship with important artists. One of his closest relationship was to the artist Max Ernst whom he initiated in the various techniques of printmaking, accompanying him throughout his career.

Other notable artists that collaborated closely with Visat are Roberto Matta, Braque, Chagall, Miro, Leger, Giacometti, Man Ray, Bellmer, Magritte, Tanning, and Francis Bacon.

George Visat is also known to have printed many artists books including the 1988 "Voyages extra-terrestres d'un naïf"

Exhibition

If the object I am observing is relatively small, I may not observe it without disturbing it. Am I observing the object? Or the result of the disturbance my observation has on the object? since our thoughts are invisible to the naked eye, how do they affect our relationship with reality in everyday life? How do the notions of reality, matter and consciousness collaborate in this context? The link between time and space becomes elastic. Objective reality starts to curve. If our thoughts are invisible to the naked eyeIf our, how do they affect our relation to reality in everyday life? Consciousness, language and matter bifurcate.I rely on this bifurcation as I observe the continuous flow of one instant adding itself to another.I cut up words and images and by the process of collage, let another possibe meaning emerge.

Artist’s Statement

In the work that I create, the surfaces, forms, colors, details, and lack thereof simultaneously invite exploration while inhibiting preconceived perceptions and interpretations. While unable to recognize and interpret the objects or even the spaces that are presented correctly, a hypersensitivity of limitations and desires arises that, I believe, parallels our everyday experiences of the real and the imaginary. Significance, in whatever form it may reveal itself, lies neither in the real or the imagined, but somewhere in between. It is in the space between things, where reason, perception, and imagination meet, that we can discover a realm in which the fascinating, the mysterious, and the limitless can be experienced concurrently: a transcendental space.

Exhibition broderie sur lignes de code

Hélène Latulippe was born in Quebec. She lives and works in Montreal. She studied at the CEGEP du Vieux-Montréal (Industrial Design) and at Concordia University in Montreal (Bachelor of Fine Arts).

Her work sheds light on Man’s passage. Hunting down remnants of memory, she reshapes them, reorganizes them to bring an emotion to the surface with which the viewer can identify. Responding to her own attraction to materials, big formats and her love for leaving marks, she molds her vocabulary after a simple shape, a solid color and a process based on the repetition of gesture.

Biography

Joani Tremblay was born in Montreal,Canada. From a young age, she showeda keen interest in art and design. Afterstudying graphic design she took on abachelor’s degree in visual art at l’uqam in Montreal. In her recent work, she began a research path towards the understanding of the concept of repetition with a significant amount of delicate toiling with the intent of attaining a more simplified composition approaching abstraction. These pieces, created in method resembling that of nature will result in images comparable to biomorphic forms, topographical mapping and even cellular structures.

My work explores the etiology behind neurological disorders that affect motor coordination required to perform daily, sometimes simplistic, activities. I am specifically interested in the genetic disorder ‘essential tremor’ a condition that impairs fine motor movement most commonly noticed in the hands. My interest in the study of ‘essential tremor’ relates directly to my family. There is a great deal of uncertainty with regard to the cause or set of causes that surround the condition. To measure ‘tremor’ severity, individuals are sometimes assessed by the evaluation of drawing and handwriting samples under different conditions (i.e. drawing softly, rapidly, tracing or drawing freehand). I use these rudimentary tests for diagnosis as a way to explore the idea of the ‘tremor’ in my work.

Artist statment


By accomplishing this exhibition project, I hope to explore the notion of ornamentation by combining installation, ceramic and printmaking. By using this multidisciplinary approach, I intend to create an installation where various aesthetics meet and force the viewer to confront simultaneously Western, Japanese and Victorian notions. Firstly, I will create a series of silkscreens, framed by gouache vignettes of cowboys and samurais. Secondly, I will create wallpaper imitating the toile de jouy pattern, only with cowboys. Lastly, I will present ceramics decorated with the same patterns as the wallpaper. The whole of the installation brought together by two main colors, red and black.

wieslaw haladaj

Exhibition Tuesday 10th April - 5th May 2012

Opening: Thursday 19th April at 17:30.

Artist’s statement

In his practice, Wieslaw Haladaj explores the expressive power of the line. The artist’s compositions, particularly dense and dramatic, are founded on the dynamics of the diagonal. The criss crossing and slashing lines express a powerful tension. Out of these accumulations of frantic scratches, emerge dark and haunting faces, enigmatic contorted bodies, and half man half animal creatures. Darkness towards light, the artist seeks to reveal the genesis of the human psyche, that moment of animal fear when the human realizes the vacuity of his transitory existence.

biography

Wieslaw Haladaj was born in Piotrkow Trybunalski (Poland) in 1959. After having completed his studies in visual arts at University of Lodz in 1984, the artist pursued a career in printmaking, painting and drawing. In addition to numerous individual exhibitions in his own country he participated in more tran 150 group exhibitions around the world and received more than 20 International prizes for printmaking. The most prestigous are:

Exhibition définition d’affichage


In the exhibition Définitions d’affichage, the artist presents a range of works made from printed papers. Inspired by pixelated media imagery and construction games, the artist creates abstract and geometric spaces by folding printed paper. The space created by the folds and random traits modifies our relation to the surface of these works. The surface becomes malleable, an interface offering unlimited possibilities of combinations. There is thus a dialogue between the ways we perceive, imagine and interact with our environment, as well as the impact scientific and media imagery incur. How do tools, images and interfaces affect our relation to space and distances, to temporality?

The artist thanks le Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec for his support for the creation of the works presented in this exhibition.

Opening: Thursday 18th November 2010 at 17:30

Exhibition synchronicité



On the 16th of November, the Montreal artist Pierre Durette will be showing a series of new works at the Atelier-galerie Alain Piroir. The show consists of two large lithographs and a series of etchings. Durette’s exhibit revisits genre works situating them somewhere between the Middle Ages and the world of science fiction. Within these worlds, miniature characters float and accumulate on a white background. The resulting jamming of lines evokes a meeting of worlds and from this jumble new cultures and religions emerge. According to Durette, this is a reflection on the evolution of threat and also the manufacturing of a new history.

The staging of time is central to Durette’s work. Between the grotesque lines and the mash up of centuries, the work revisits the idea of the traditional time line, mixing time, culture and tradition.

Pierre Durette is originally from the Matapedia valley and has a bachelor of visual and media arts from UQAM. His work has received numerous mentions and prizes and has been shown at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal as well as galleries in Ontario and Québec.


L’Atelier-galerie Alain Piroir is a studio and gallery space dedicated to the creation and the exhibition of contemporary printed works. Open since 2007, the gallery’s mandate is to support artists in their practice and to promote contemporary printed works in the larger public.
