Title: Maison ou porte

Medium: Techniques mixtes

Date: 2021

La mort a frappé en décembre 2020.  La maison est temporairement ébranlée mais elle n’a pas perdu de son lustre car ses racines sont profondes. Elles assureront la survie avec un peu de temps, de distance et de confiance en la force des liens du sang.

Une maison ébranlée ou une porte qui donne sur un boisé d’arbres solidement enracinés. Les couleurs de cet automne 2021 sont un gage d’espoir pour un avenir plus proche que soupçonné…

Title: Preposterous Pandemic Abandon in Palos Verdes

Medium: Acrylic on wood panel

Date: 2020-2021

The idea came to me as I followed the news in the summer and fall of 2020 and clipped black and white photos from the Gazette of beachgoers in Southern California congregating oblivious of mask-wearing protocols that we in Montreal were observing with increasing ferocity especially as news came in that the first to die in the old age home here so perversely were the caretakers that had not had vaccinations, did not have enough masks, etc. I realized the “red sky in the morning/sailor take warning” coloration of the beach and sky was at play in my choice of colors.  I also felt as the improbable “cannonball” diver on the lower left (who also was depicted in the news on a different day) came into the painting and other “ghost divers” started falling through the air that there was a cautionary tale here taking place–maybe as much a full-scale warning because the numbers of deaths from Coronavirus (and many acts of wanton human behaviour were building towards a “perfect storm” more than just a surrealistic echo of Magritte. I decided to let them fall unfinished, the consequences they have wrought “hang fire,” as it were, suspended in air. I like being able to get a philosophical distance from the story in the pattern.

Title: DANCE DEMO – SUMMER 2021

Medium: Video

Date: 2021

This work is a creative response to a demonstration captured on video this past summer in Pine Beach Park, Dorval for Lesley’s dance students.

Lesley Charters Cotton always briefly demonstrates each dance before teaching the routine.  Once the steps are mastered, dancers are encouraged to improvise using arms, hips, heads and faces.  Often we partner.  One is the audience while the partner personalizes the routine before switching and verbally sharing impressions.  Sometimes we mentally challenge ourselves as we repeat the same routine on the left side and switch back to the right.  We have fun.

Title: Châteaufort Community Garden with a “Matisse” view

Medium: Acrylic on paper

Size: 41” x 25”

Date: 2021

The designer of the garden, Mark, created lots of visual art in the garden this summer. One of his objects, a bird bath feeder, in which he arranged a sculpture-like stone and some plants and fruits, giving the impression of a near-cubist painting of Matisse. I pushed more this illusion in my painting by adding at the back of the garden a window from Matisse’s studio giving to the sea-side.
