LA PEINTURE CE N'EST PAS QUE PEINDRE

Master's exhibition in visual arts

PECH-Sherpa Gallery, Saint-Roch, Quebec City

« The coronavirus crisis has forced many visual artists to cancel or postpone their exhibition. Étienne Rousseau, graduating with a master's degree in visual arts at Laval University's art school, chose not to wait. »

« The exhibition La peinture ce n'est pas que peindre is a call to reflect on the creation of an abstract painting in order to rethink the preconceived ideas that one has of it. As the title of the exhibition suggests, a painting is not just the act of spreading random colors on a canvas. There is a whole research on the plastic characteristics that accompany it and how they interact with each other creating atmospheres of spatial tensions. »
