Michael A. Robinson
L'horizon des événements
January 19 to March 2, 2008
Montreal conceptual artist Michael A. Robinson has developed an emotion-charged body of work that transgresses dominant notions of art and artistic genre. His works directly and literally question the nature of creative expression and the condition of the artist. Mixing figurative and formal languages, conceptual and expressionist conventions, he follows an approach in which the works deliberately play on the candid vulnerability of the acts inherent to making art. Featuring drawings, installations and sculptures, L'horizon des événements is built around the precise moment when a work of art takes shape in the artist's mind. Individually devoid of meaning, the pieces present themselves in a movement of implosion, inviting the viewer to share the experience that gave rise to their creation.
Opening Saturday January 19 at 3 p.m.
