Reception will take place on November 7th, 3PM to 5PM
“Tu n’es pas ici” is an exhibition of Galerie Maison Kasini’s Quebec artists: Yvon Goulet is an urban folklorist whose paintings on recycled plastic panels draws inspiration from the Montreal urban life and the roads and byways of Quebec. Inspired by vintage commercial signage in Montreal, Clement Yeh creates large wood sculptures that captures the essense of the visual world where Montrealers live, work, and play and presents it to the viewer. Px(c) makes a cultural statement about the dominance of commercial culture in everyday life in paintings that are a hybrid of American and British Pop Art. Luis London explores the emotional impact of childhood in a series of paintings rendered in a graphic-design-meets-pop style. In Artshop, Denise Suprenant makes monoprints and small sculptures using entirely recycled or recovered materials and Veronique Perron presents a body of small paintings where a variety of funky creatures go to the dentist, pose for cameras, and express their love for lollipops.
“Tu n’es pas ici” is part of a series of exhibitions designed to introduce the public to Galerie Maison Kasini. It was preceded by Commencement and the Grand Opening of the gallery in September and “Les Invasions barbares,” an exhibition of the gallery’s American artists in October.
“Tu n’es pas ici” is on view during the month of November. A reception will take place on Saturday, November 7th, 3PM to 5PM.
Maison Kasini is located at the Belgo Building, 372 Ste Catherine Ouest, Suite 408, Montreal. Hours: 11AM to 5:30PM: Wednesday through Saturday and by appointment.
