Molinari en noir et en couleur - 50 ans de ''molinarismes''
February 28 to May 31, 2015
Gilles Daigneault and Lisa Bouraly | Guido Molinari Foundation

 In 1954, Le Petit Journal, in a brief item, referred to Guido Molinari as being “recognised as one of the theorists of automatism in Montréal”. The artist set the record straight in a telegram: “Have never joined the automatist group — stop — therefore cannot be one of its theorists — stop — I am the theorist of molinarism...”

Of course, Molinari was responding in jest, since he had not yet held a solo exhibition. More than 60 yearshave passed and “molinarism” now refers to a movement which has left its mark on painting in Canada. Molinari was not only the theorist of the movement; he was also its most generous and energising practitioner.

In fact, following his legendary canvases of 1951, that he painted inthe dark and which were a lesson in... automatism for the disciples of Borduas, Molinari never stopped restructuring abstract spaces in a manner that was generally found disconcerting and regarded as “art for the sake of research”.As he set for himself time frames that could vary as necessary from a few weeks to several years, Molinari never ceased considering colour — and black and white! — as forms of pure energy destined to be intergrated in paintings that would never breathe to the exact same tempo. He found solace from the public’s relative lack of interest by reminding himself that “even Mondian’s works were once considered experimental and unworthy of being exhibited with those of other artists...” 


Muriel Faille - First Nature

Painter, engraver and editor, Muriel Faille studiedfine arts at UQAM. In 2011, she was awarded the Prix International Saint-Denys-Garneau for her work on artist books. Here, she is exhibiting oil paintings and a few books illustrated by her hand and her imaginary. The artist invites you to an aesthetic experience set at an angle that is poetical and metaphysical.

“I seek to transcribe the immediate materiality of time and of the times. A treatment as a language, a trace as a world that is accessible to real time. My works put into view a journey where life springs forth from telluric and cosmic forces as well as from an atmosphere that breathes the sky and the Earth. Thus I touch the greatness and fragility of our world... of our first nature.”


Danielle Trussart - Impression du moment
February 28 to May 31, 2015

Better known for her work as an author (Prix Robert-Cliche 2008), Danielle Trussart is also an artist and a painter.  Inspired in part by the natural surroundings of Charlevoix, she creates works that reflect geological footprints, traces of life.  Her impression of various and chosen moments…

“At times, the moment stretches in a slow contemplation from which emerge great laminated landscapes.  In other instances, it is fragmented in sequences that create paintings with cut-out prints in juxtaposition with one another.  At other  times, the moment seems to jump out spontaneously and, with the help of a drawing pen, a wax crayon and India ink, produce small alien drawings that come together to compose new ensembles.” 

The Musée d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul is proud to provide you with the opportunity to discover or rediscover this facet of this multitalented and multidisciplinary artist.
