Louis-Pierre Bougie - Between line and life
November 1st, 2014 to February 8, 2015 (Françoise-Labbé and Multifonctionnelle Galleries)
Guest Curator : Claude Morissette

During the course of his career, emeritus painter, draftsman and engraver Louis-Pierre Bougie has created a large body of works featuring the human being as principal subject.  This bears witness to the artist’s need to express different aspects of the human condition.  These works belong to Québec’s contemporary figurative renewal movement which started in the early 1980s.  Eschewing the strict reality of appearances, the artist explored fantasy and interiority to achieve better evocations of poetic and timeless worlds inhabited by enigmatic beings.  This iconography has been Louis-Pierre Bougie’s brand and it is a hallmark of his creative activity.

This retrospective exhibition offers a unique opportunity to appreciate this artist’s creative path and to measure the scope and quality of his artistic production.  His works probe the human soul and, through a free narration, they reflect the interiority of the human being.  The art of Louis-Pierre Bougie is a powerful crossbreeding of realism, expressionism and symbolism.  By combining these different artistic languages in a singular manner, the artist stood out as an innovator in the field of representation.  The exhibition is a journey through the artist’s interior worlds and the viewer will be moved by the power and evocative qualities of the images.


Normand Moffat - Scriptorium
November 1st, 2014 to February 8, 2015 (Room Mezzanine)

Former participant to the Contemporary Art International Symposium of Baie-St-Paul, Normand Moffat presents here a group of twenty-five intimist artworks. Using different architectural aspects of a French abbey as sources of visual inspiration, the artist created the Scriptorium serie in the abbey room bearing the same name, the one where the monks used to produce copies of manuscripts. Created on black paper with acrylic, graphite and gold leaf, these artworks testify to the times human beings cope with... The past that witnesses the others and their passage; the present that drives us in its whirlwind and the future filled with promises and unknown. Although simple and minimalist, each work contains a strength in its reuse of geometric signs, its balance and its invitation to introspection.
