CURRENT EXHIBITION
FRANCINE POTVIN
Voyages immobiles

Francine Potvin - Voyages immobilesMay 5 to August 18, 2019

Following my heart and what my eyes tell me, I wander through the world of plants and human beings.

Through Voyages immobiles, multidisciplinary artist Francine Potvin is exhibiting several new works inspired by nature and wild flora. Unusual ceramics, black and white linocuts of little land animals, collagraphs based on plant seeds and cyanotypes (photographic blueprints) combine, to create a vibrant, poetic body of work. The show also includes a series of ink spot pictures – images that invite the viewer to give their imagination free rein as they try to interpret what they might mean! The entire exhibition is themed around the idea of the balance and interrelationship between all forms of living things. Voyages immobiles reveals as much about the landscape as it does about the people who live in it, like Francine Potvin.

Human beings increase their understanding when they stop navel-gazing

In the exhibition Voyages immobiles, Diane Ferland, the Eastern Townships glass artist, offers a veritable incursion into her coloured glass creations, some of which are adorned with lace, feathers or greenery. The artist invites viewers to reflect on our notion of what constitutes a point of view, whether that be how to approach a certain situation, decode a message or interpret a work of art. Those are unique to each individual and varies according to their own beliefs and life experiences. And speaking of different ways to approach something, this glass artist and educator skillfully combines traditional techniques with innovative ones, giving birth to a dizzying kaleidoscope of shapes, colours and light. Aerial works, illuminated works and half-hidden works all combine to create a diverse, breathtaking show that will truly amaze you!
