Modern Lyricism: Artworks by Marc Tremblay
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Marc Tremblay in Breaking with Realism. The exhibition opens September 2, 2017 and runs through September 22, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, September 7 from 6-8 pm.
Mysterious and inviting, the work of Marc Tremblay presents a new kind of modern lyricism. Tremblay makes what he calls "digital paintings": a hand-crafted, meticulous method which results in highly personal images that hardly seem related to our accepted idea of computer graphics. The inspiration he takes from classic Greek art peeks out in the most unexpected places. The palette is soft but distinctly unearthly, with teals, pinks, bright yellows and blues all swirling. The textures are exaggerated but recognizable. Tremblay has a light touch and a playful tone.
But it is Tremblay's subject — the female figure — that is perhaps the most traditional of all his work's elements. He presents it in motion and at rest. He weaves narratives and treats the figure as an end in itself. His women float against cloudy skies and disappear behind shadows. Some look the viewer full on, while others don't even have faces. Every one of them is a mystical figure — iconic, symbolic, and powerful.
Tremblay lives and works in Chicoutimi, Québec, Canada, where he pursues his interest in classical art.
