Les lignes fantômes

Following four years of investigations framed by the Île de Carillon forest, Julie Ouellet now presents us with, under the title Les lignes fantômes, some twenty works on wood and paper. This exhibition follows the one held in 2018 at the Maison de la culture Frontenac that marked the completion of her master’s degree. Here the artist reconnects with painting—a discipline she had given up these last years.

Since 2015, Julie Ouellet has set herself limits in terms of subject, medium and size. Now, however, she is allowing herself to expand her scope in different ways, whether through a variety of formats, the addition of techniques she had put aside, or the multiplication of points of view. Through various perspectives and views, Ouellet lends new vitality to the landscapes depicted. Similarly, by means of the aggregation of shapes and patterns, the artist emphasizes the resonatory impact of her works. Using intersecting forms, she draws lines as if she were marking time like a capricious typewriter.

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.
