Inaugural exhibition : Catherine Bolduc : Parallel Life (extract)
In this series of works on paper, the artist hijacks photographs and illustrations from commercial image banks usually intended for graphic and advertising designers. Through interventions with pencils, watercolor and fluorescent acrylic paint on the inkjet printed surface, bursts of liquid and streaks of color evoking waterfalls, tornadoes or erupting volcanoes invade the space represented. Thus, contaminated by the pictorial gesture, these smooth images as watered down versions of contemporary life reveal a parallel psychic life that responds more to an emotional order, or disorder.
