Beaulne Mu­seum Presents

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Coat­i­cook

The Beaulne Mu­seum of Coat­i­cook is pleased to present the ex­hi­bi­tion “En un in­stant” by the artist Gonza Meza Var­gas from the 5th of June to the 3rd of July 2016. . The grand open­ing will be held on Sun­day the 5th of June at 2pm. The pub­lic and the press are cor­dially in­vited.

Gonza Meza Var­gas is in­ter­ested in ex­plor­ing dif­fer­ent styles and tech­niques of paint­ing and draw­ing as well as seek­ing to deepen the con­tact with make­be­lieve which in­ter­feres daily. Triv­ial and com­mon sit­u­a­tions are an­i­mated by amaz­ing de­tails which we will find once we pay at­ten­tion to them.

Within this ex­hibit, il­lus­tra­tions of sit­u­a­tions are gath­ered which oc­cur at ex­actly the same time in dif­fer­ent places of the uni­verse. It is in fact 2 or maybe even 3 sec­onds in sep­a­rate lo­ca­tions of a street cor­ner or a thou­sand kilo­me­ters. And how many new im­ages could we de­scribe within those 3 sec­onds and the next and so on?... Al­ways ex­plor­ing the world of draw­ing, whether it would be with ink or graphite, this ex­hibit is a com­pi­la­tion of cre­ations from his first two so­los ex­hibits as well as some new draw­ings pre­sented to the pub­lic for the first time.

Gonza Meza, draws and plays music. He was born in San­ti­ago, Chili in 1978. In 2009, he left his coun­try for Mon­treal with his wife Fanny. After par­tic­i­pat­ing in a few col­lec­tive ex­hibits, he has his first solo ti­tled « En un in­stant » in 2012 and his sec­ond « Les vapeurs, le jaune, les ver­sions et autres con­tes » in 2013. Fol­low­ing these two ex­pe­ri­ences, he put to­gether a project called “tournée vi­suelle” by merg­ing cat­a­logues and cre­at­ing a new nar­ra­tive spe­cific to each pre­sen­ta­tion. Thus, his work is pre­sented here and there in Que­bec: in the Beauce, in Abitibi and Témis­camingue, in Mon­térégie, in Lanaudière, in Que­bec and in the Lau­ren­tides. In­for­ma­tions : 819-849-6560.
