Share

Three women artists are living in a loft-atelier de Saint-Roch built in the exhibition hall. Shono Teramoto, Myriam Bouchard and Hélène Allard make dialogue their works with care, paying tribute to Japan, to zen and to the Earth in the same breath.

Hélène Allard made up of aerial views imaginary from egg shells. The delicate relief, full of fine cracks, gives the impression of flying over territories imagined millenniums.

The ceramist Myriam Bouchard mania earth and fire, with the ease of Hephaestus and the finesse of a fairy. His pieces, large-format are similar to the open shells of some mythological creature. Its objects, fired in a kiln Anagama, by firing Saggar or electric cooking, reminiscent of both the lava and the sacred stones.

The two artists have known Shono Teramoto while she gave courses of japanese calligraphy. It grew up in Japan, and then spent some time in London and three years in Quebec city before settling in Kyoto. She’s been perfecting her art since she was six years old. A single character, drawn in black ink with a wide brush, represents an entire world. He is dancing, in charge of energy, on the canvas. Its Enso, large circles in a gesture that reveal the degree of concentration, mood and state of mind of one who devotes himself to this mode of expression, are the result of a ritual as spiritual as performative.

In the ink, it sometimes adds metallic pigments. His signature, contained in a small red square, seems to seal the balance of his compositions. His works use for the most part the japanese traditional style, but some are also chinese influences. Writing, treated thus, is like a “music frost”, illustrates it. Each work is like a window.

For Myriam Bouchard, present this exhibition is a form of farewell, as she has sold the shop to a young artist. It will continue its work in France, where she intends to remain six months in the year.

Until October 27, at 291, Christophe-Colomb Est, app 205. Info : 418 575-7483
