Expo At Beaulne Museum
Although very different, the work of Majeau and Tardif beckon and complete each other. They provoke discussions and questions pertaining to work, the power of authorities and life in general.
This exhibit reflects the path taken by each artist. Majeau worked for 17 years in housing rights then returned to visual arts and media attributive as a teacher. She remained influenced by life’s tenancy. Tardif, being an author and educator, is drawn to iconography which helps in describing his opinions. The result of these works of art is not apparent but more “snap shots” of the world.
Their work, executed on medium size surfaces is adequate so it may create a distance without invading the viewer. However demanding in the repetition of words particularly in Tardif’s work. The art produced by this artist are mostly smooth whereas those of Majeau are textured with a lot of paper, photograph and paste which results in being diverse and poignant.
