MARC TREMBLAY

Breaking with Realism
September 2 - September 22, 2017
Reception: Thursday September 7, 2017 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.
