Beaulne Museum presents
The Beaulne Museum is delighted to present the exhibit « Fragment de mémoire » by the artist Roger Audibert from the 11th of September to the 9th of October 2016. The grand opening will be held on Sunday the 11th of September at 2pm. The public and the press are cordially invited.
« Fragment de mémoire » is a pictorial representation of people affected with the illness of forgetfulness. Between 20 and 30 oil paintings were produced using the technique of many thin coats of paint. Formats ranging from 81cm x 81cm, you may view fragments of images with the illusion of a third dimension by the effect of shadows and cutting. These topics are found in mysterious and abstract environments, giving an important place in the central image.
Roger Audibert was influenced by the end of his high school years by artists such as Dali, Picasso, Magritte, Delvaux etc. After several years and many attempts in this field, he finally managed to present his first solo exhibition in 1979.
A few years later, after his bachelor's degree in Visual Arts at the University of Laval, he participated in a few competitions in visual arts. In the Quebec-France Symposium, he won the gold medal for his acrylic creation. A few months later in 1989 at the Salon des Artistes-Peintres du Québec à Montréal, he is honored with a gold medal for his creations “Après la pluie le beau temps”. His success becomes unstoppable.
Many of his creations were purchased for private collections and one is in a public space at the (INRS) University of Research in Quebec.
