In the manner of an organic cartography, Parfum liquide seduces the visitor into an enigmatic universe. The exhibition becomes a sensory place, in which the fluid materiality of the paintings releases a dreamlike and intimate fragrance. The sensitivity of the artists which triumphs here emphasizes the interconnection of each one’s hybrid experiences, where physicality and virtuality overlap, juxtapose, in order to draw new fantastic environments.

Through immersion, Parfum liquide invites discovery. Combining textures, movements, compositions, naive rendering and total abstraction: the works put in dialogue allow for a free and subjective understanding. On the way, characters sometimes banal, others curious, slip in and give the tone to a most mythical ensemble.

With works by Raúl Aguilar Canela (México City), Manuel Bisson (Tiohtià:ke/Montreal), Erzulie (Tiohtià:ke/Montreal), Sara Ludy (New-Mexico) and Antoine Thériault (Tiohtià:ke/Montreal), accompanied by Juste Japon, an original sound creation designed by feu doux (Stéphane Lafleur & Christophe Lamarche, Tiohtià:ke/Montreal).

~ “I find painting and screen almost synonymous. Both paintings and screens are also skins that we build and to which we make holes. They’re good at making things public; bringing the inside — guts, feeling, thought, insecurities, pathologies — to the outside.”

•••

Digital material is explored in ways that construct liminal spaces. These paintings thus draw closer to sculpture, while the different shapes and colors superimposed recall earthly yet elusive architectures. From there, otherwise invisible scenes emerge, similar to grandiose universes of macro-organisms.

In the way one remembers a dream, his paintings offer complex, mysterious narratives that do not obey a determined structure. ~

~ Airbrush renderings, dark colors, patterns, blurs, vibration, and layers of multiple perceptions blend to migrate the image into new realities of interpretation. In doing so, the compositions invite the audience to enter a spatial alchemy at the edge of science fiction, occultism and a magical-poetic formalism.

•••

A faux-naive style allows a critical representation of popular subjects and consumerist culture. The pastel colors and dynamic strokes used create compositions with a raw and candid look that ironizes the notion of the outsider within Western social thought. ~
