The West End Gallery is excited to showcase Josée Lord's premiere exhibition at our Victoria gallery! The exhibition opens Saturday, September 10th, and runs until September 22nd.
Josée's still life paintings are marked by a singular style, a radiant declination of warm colours and bursting opaque reds and blues that shape the perspective of her still life flowers. These tones give the precise shape of the still life, and her florals spread shivers of beautiful colours as if Josée has given them distinct personalities. She needs direct contact with the material, and she likes to touch the painting to breathe life into it.

This documentary resulted from an unexpected encounter between a painter and a young filmmaker. The idea of carrying out a magnificent project came from their first exchange. Without a budget and funding, simply for the love of art, these two artists wanted to express a familiar feeling: The desire to be an artist.
He takes it all in from the perspective of a passerby. Compositions are caught on the run. Momentary scenes of which the recollection contains only the essential. They are spontaneous - not to say improvised, as Robert captures many familiar locations in Montréal. It is a free-style, remembering a place in how it once was or should be, in one's mind with a hint of mischief.
