Painter and sculpture MAJ Fortier views today’s society through a whimsical and yet profound lens. He draws his inspiration from the irony of the human condition – a precarious balance between reality and ridicule – creating works that have a lasting effect on the viewer.
In this exhibition, the artist is showing a series of digital prints, themed around clothing, exploring the symbolism behind what an individual might choose to wear when going out and about.
Pression en tubes, a new series of bronze sculptures, is also part of this exhibition. Shaped like giant squeezed toothpaste tubes, the sculptures depict the many pressures an individual has to deal with, in today’s consumer society. Fortier’s art certainly gives viewers food for thought!
