Part of The Living is Easy: a series of projects by Struts & Faucet members

The research for these paintings focuses itself somewhere between pictorial and three-dimensional concerns; between the literal and the illusory. This series of geometrical shaped paintings play on the idea of perceptual illusionism and the illustration of volume. My interest for shaped canvas is in its ability to stand out; to engage the viewer to see the paintings as an object instead of a flat surface. My project presents multiple shaped canvases, which are regrouped into a hexagon-like form. Each surface is individually built. They can be shifted, re-arranged or left absent in new structures and compositions.

La recherche pour mes peintures se rencontre quelque part entre la figuration picturale et la troisième dimension; entre l’illusoire et le littérale. Cette série de toiles géométriques jouent avec l’idée de la perception des illusions et de l’illustration du volume. Mon intérêt pour le «shapedcanvas» est premièrement pour leur habilité de ressortir du mur et d’engager le spectateur à voir la toile comme un objet et non comme une surface plane. Le projet proposé présente plusieurs toiles géométriques regroupés dans de formes hexagonales. Chaque surface est construite individuellement. Elles peuvent donc être déplacées, réaménagées ou retirées à l’intérieur de nouvelles structures et compositions pour former de nouveaux ensembles.
