The works in this exhibition will offer, each in their own way, a uniquely microscopic view of a wider world. Minute, predominantly blue, particles will lead the viewer’s gaze into the medium that, at this enlarged scale, will appear strange and disconcerting. 

Brought together here will be works by artists Marie-Eve Beaulieu, Carol Bernier, Michel Campeau, Jean-Sébastien Denis, Catherine Farish, Mark Francis, JoeYan Hui, Denis Juneau and Mark Stebbins.

Chacune des œuvres de cette exposition offre, à sa manière, une vision microscopique unique d’un environnement plus vaste. Ces particules minuscules, à la dominante de bleu, font pénétrer le regard du spectateur dans la matière qui, à cette échelle agrandie, nous apparaît étrangère et déroutante.

À l’occasion de cette exposition, le travail de différents artistes sera réuni : Marie-Eve Beaulieu, Carol Bernier, Michel Campeau, Jean-Sébastien Denis, Catherine Farish, Mark Francis, JoeYan Hui, Denis Juneau et Mark Stebbins.

Arc Poetry Magazine

Issue 68 of Arc Poetry Magazine is now on news stands and features my piece Division on the cover.  There’s also a seven-page spread showing a variety of my pieces in the middle of the magazine.

Two of the pieces depicted are brand new: a little preview of work that will form part of my upcoming solo exhibition, Glitch-alikes, at Galerie BAC, Bigué Art Contemporain in Montreal.  Glitch-alikes opens September 6 and will be on view through September 29, 2012.

Since its debut in 1978, Arc Poetry Magazine, Canada’s only poetry-exclusive forum, publishes new work by Canada’s most exciting new and established poets, alongside considered discussions of the form through articles, interviews and book reviews.  Each issue also features a showcase on the work of one Canadian visual artist.  Arc Poetry publishes three issues per year: summer, winter, and a themed fall Arc Annual.
