Negative photos at Beaulne
TheBeaulne Museum of Coaticook is pleased to present the exhibition by artist photographer Jean Grothé, from 07 July to 08 September 2013. The public and the press are cordially invited. The exhibition,
shows the result of the work of the artist photographer Jean Grothé carried out in 2011 and 2012 thanks to the Artist-in-Residence program of the City of Coaticook. Certainly, elements of the region’s territory can be found, but perceived through the eyes of the photographer and transposed into his poetic universe. In an exceptional and amazing way, he makes us see the beauty of the world as the owl does, and can we hazard a guess, can see very clearly in the dark ...
“Photography for me is a sensory and sensual experience. Consequently, my images are correspondences, or as Stieglitz stated, experiential equivalences,” he says.
For the series Coaticook en lumière noire, he has resorted to printing in negative. The exhibition includes thirty works.
Jean Grothé has shown his work in solo and group exhibitions in Canada, Europe and Shanghai. His works are located in
several private collections. He has received various distinguishing marks, including the Award of Excellence SIDIM (International Exhibition of Interior Design Montreal) in 2012.
