An exhibition of new abstract artworks from emerging painters, Bridgette Perron and Martin Simard.
Fluidity, rhythm and energy coalesces in these contemplative works. Some are “free form” expressions from the subconscious, others arise from meditations upon “entropy”, “ecstasy” and the teleology of human aesthetics.
The artists have developed their professional practices with varying levels of artistic instruction and influence. Simard’s are primitive works that seem unfettered by artistic traditions or schools of thought. Perron has found new territory for her expression after many years of training and influences that Include: impressionism and post-painterly abstract expressionism.
