Françoise Sullivan: Paintings 1980-2020

Françoise Sullivan first studied painting in the 1940s before joining the Automatiste group formed around Paul-Émile Borduas. But it was dance that would become her subject of creation during the first 30 years of her professional life. She then practiced sculpture throughout the 1960s, followed by photography, video and performance in the 1970s.

She resumed the practice of painting in the 1980s, without respite, and is more active than ever, even today in 2020. Her career is an incredible phenomenon where one can admire her most recent works and quality them, without hesitation, as always relevant, and certainly some of the richest of her entire career.

Our exhibition brings together paintings created between 1980 and 2020, which are also among the most beautiful achievements in painting in Canada in recent years.

Galerie Simon Blais

Galerie Simon Blais was founded in 1989 and initially specialized in works on paper and contemporary abstract prints. Today, the gallery represents both emerging and established artists working in diverse media such as painting, drawing, sculpture, prints and photography. Historical paintings and sculptures are also a special interest for us, with a focus on leading Québec and Canadian artists such as Riopelle, Ferron, Letendre, McEwen and Daudelin, which are regularly presented in the context of exhibitions. A dynamic space, the gallery is known both within Canada and abroad through its participation in various contemporary art events around the world.
