« Qu'est-ce qui se trame ? »
The research of this artist from Val-Joli is questioning the means deployed by humanity to exercise power over nature and politics. ST-PIERRE’s themes deal with the territory, exile, the environment, memory. In his paintings, he is transforming photographs of key events drawn from the socio-political sphere, the media, personal documents, or public archives. His compositions make tensions collide to cause moments of visual disjunction. From this aesthetic uniqueness emerges a contrast between expressive and austere focal points. His exhibition consists of works made since 2019.
ST-PIERRE participated in the Miami Scope art fair as well as about fifteen group exhibitions all over Quebec. His work was featured right here in Victoriaville in 2017, in a solo exhibition at Carré 150’s Centre d’art Jacques-et-Michel-Auger. He will soon have an exhibition at the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke.
