POL TURGEON | TRANSFIGURATIONS
25, rue Laurier, Maison du Citoyen, 1er étage, Gatineau, (Québec), J8X 4C8
From May 10th till June 10th, 2018. This exhibition presents a gallery of characters straddling epochs and dimensions. We are faced with a constellation of chimerical beings whose identity seems fluid, continually escaping clear definition: neither entirely human nor entirely animal, often both male and female, contemporary but with a hint of another era. The main source of inspiration for these works was Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres sublime sketches of some of his models. These characters sparked the artist's imagination and allowed him to venture down unmarked paths. Vernissage on May 10th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
