Richard-Max Tremblay Hors champs II
Works in the exhibition
With Hors Champ II, Richard-Max Tremblay picks up where his 1999's Hors Champ exhibition left off, further exploring French author Georges Pérec's themes of disappearance and his investigations into the mutability of language.
Though art magazines, piled canvases and precariously stacked boxes are the ostensible subjects of Tremblay's show, the artist's true interest is in the hidden - in what we are prevented from seeing. As the boxes, magazines, and canvases shield one another from view, our sense of them as objects yields to a deeper appreciation of what they symbolize in our lives: the inscrutable, the enigmatic, and the lost from view.
Tremblay's work can be found in many public and private collections including that of The Canada Council Art Bank, National Bank of Canada, and Bibliothèque et Archives Nationales du Québec (BANQ).
Richard-Max Tremblay lives and works in Montreal, Canada.
