On September 29th, Matthew Namour Gallery will be presenting Kevin Cyr’s (interviewed) first solo show in Montreal entitled Homage. The new body of work will be a continuation of the American artist’s case studies of everyday work vehicles – the more imperfections, signs of age, and graffiti – the better. As is his usual practice, Cyr spent time documenting and then painting his subject matter while telling their story through his art. Discuss Kevin Cyr here.
C.O.A. Gallery in Montreal will be opening a solo show by Isaac Cordal on October 29th. The Spanish artist is currently adding final touches to Urban Inertia, an installation that will continue the public interventions he has been working on around the city in the last few weeks. Cordal is known for his small cement, now resin, sculptures that he places in cracks in the walls, puddles, sidewalks, rooftops, and other nooks and crannies in the urban environment. These small character based installations often symbolize the suicidal spiral of […]

With Sandra Chevrier’s schedule for 2015 fully packed with group shows everywhere from POW! WOW! in Hawaii to Castor Gallery in NYC, art fair showings, and finally a big solo show with Jonathan LeVine Gallery, we thought we would catch up with Montreal-based artist. We had a peek inside her studio, talked about her distinctive technique and its origin, meaning behind her work, her past, present and future, and learnt about how women are superheroes of everyday life. Arrested Motion (AM): What influences your work? Sandra Chevrier […]
On the 26th of January, Galerie C.O.A in Montral will be opening Récidive, a solo show by the “fire painter” Spazuk. The distinctive technique he uses is called fumage, which allows him to use the flame of a candle or torch as a “paintbrush” to create his paintings with trails of soot. He later manipulates these trails by using various needles, razors, and makeshift bird feather pens, which result in incredibly detailed black and white works on canvas, panel or paper. The softness and fragility of his medium […]
As their closing exhibition for the year, Galerie d’art Yves Laroche in Montreal opened a huge group show titled Égrégore. Presenting works by 50 mostly lowbrow & pop surrealism artists, the gallery opened the show on October 30 and will keep it on view all the way until December 20th. The term Égrégore symbolizes a collective consciousness, a result of powerful emotional desires, and in this particular case, it’s a reflection of how powerful the sum of various parts can be. In other words, the gallery owner and curator, Yves Laroche, […]
Starting on October 30th, Yves Laroche in Montreal will be hosting a massive group exhibition entitled Égrégore. The term refers to a kind of group mind which is created when people consciously come together for a common purpose and was used in relation to the Montreal Surrealists, best known as Les Automatistes in the 40s. The resurrection of the idea in relation to geography and purpose is definitely appropriate to this show which will run through December 20th. Participating artists include SHAG, Van Arno, Anthony Ausgang, Liam […]
