Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Coat­i­cook

TheBeaulne Mu­seum of Coat­i­cook is pleased to present the ex­hi­bi­tion “Le voy­age in­térieur” by the artist Richard Ful­ham from the 9th of Novem­ber to the 25th of Jan­uary 2015. The grand open­ing will be held on Sun­day the 9th of Novem­ber at 2pm.The pub­lic and the press are cor­dially in­vited.

This ex­hibit in­vites the vis­i­tor to travel within the artist’s cre­ations into an imag­i­nary uni­verse. It seeks to stim­u­late ques­tion­ing by the op­po­si­tion of images or im­age trans­fers within tex­tures, as well as by the ab­strac­tion of the paint­ing. In­stinc­tive cre­ator, his paint­ings are unique and made from his per­sonal tech­nique which he calls: paint­ing-col­lage-freestyle. The re­sult is a fu­sion of ab­stract and re­al­ism. “It’s a tech­nique which I have de­vel­oped over the years, us­ing a sys­tem based on free­dom of move­ment. No sketches or prepara­tory draw­ing is per­formed. The goal is to fo­cus on an artis­tic ex­pe­ri­ence based on free­dom, chance and the au­to­ma­tion of the ges­ture”.

The ex­hibit presents a se­lec­tion of the artist’s cre­ations be­tween 2012 and 2014.

Born on the 26th of March 1951 in Ver­dun in Que­bec, Richard Ful­ham stud­ied in art at the “CEGEP du Vieux-Mon­tréal” and did ceram­ics at the “Julien stu­dio” in Que­bec. From 1977 to 1989, he worked as a ce­ramic-pot­ter. After a few ded­i­cated years to the the de­vel­op­ment of arts and crafts in Que­bec, he makes a come­back to artis­tic cre­ations. Mem­ber of the Mon­térégien Coun­cil of Cul­ture and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, Richard Ful­ham has been ded­i­cated in cre­at­ing col­lage-paint­ings since 1996.
