ESPACE TROIS, Montreal, February 22, 2006 – Espace Trois
takes pleasure in presenting
the creative works of Melissa Bailly, Marie Chantal Gelinas, Jean-Sebastien Massicote,
Andre Plamondon and Milena Scala, five artists who are graduating this year from
the Comprehensive Art Program (C.A.P.) of the School of Fine Art at the Saidye
Bronfman Centre for the Arts.
They have worked in studio arts full time for three years selecting their courses
assistance of specially trained faculty members.
Each of the artists has selected two to three works to indicate the direction
in which they are
moving in their creative development. An opportunity to see ideas by new emerging
Melissa Bailly likes to experiment with colour. Her exuberant
bright colour abstractions develope spontaneously as she applies paint to canvas
with brush, spatule or towels to create texture and form.
Marie Chantal Gelinas presents a series of diptychs which express
a simultaneous vision of the exterior public life and the interior intimate
life. She invites the viewer to contemplate the ill-fated aspect of human nature
that is often masked by appearances.
Jean-Sébastien Massicotte presents images of the urban
environment in which we live today. Working in both black and white and colour,
he expresses his vision of society.
André Plamondon immerses you in his fantasy environment
where silhouettes of characters fade into the brush strokes of powerful colors,
lights and movements. His wide 36 by 36 inch acrylic paintings depict touching
scenes of some imaginary tales in a commerical world.
Milena Scala combines the sculptural form of the aged human
figure with painted images of children at play. The juxtaposition of the young
and old illustrates the passage of time and alludes to memories trapped within.
Vernissage: Sunday, March 5, 2006 from 2 to 5 pm
Espace Trois is an exhibition space of the School of Fine Arts within the Saidye
Bronfman Centre for the Arts devoted to exhibiting work by artists who teach in the School of
