Pierre Dorion - Galerie René Blouin - Salle 3 - April 12 to June 21, 2014

Pierre Dorion’s paintings occupy a wondrous space between the flatness of formal abstraction and a seductive spatial depth often tangible of photorealism. His new solo exhibition at Galerie Blouin, in Montreal, presents a suite of new works that emphasize even further his preoccupation with the depiction of light.  Dorion’s minimalist compositions of interior architectural details act as a stage for luminous reflections, radiant streaks and gentle glows.  The prominence of light featured in Dorion’s paintings also sustains the works’ relationship to their photographic source imagery.

Occupying Dorion’s works is an affective sense of absence, creating an intriguing dissonance with the depicted light’s warmth and seduction.  Yet it is Dorion’s treatment of light and how it is ultimately perceived that remains the artist’s focus.

MidnightRadio Compilation 14

The dynamic DIYers, Gastklinge Zeitenlicht and Zucker Knopf, have been working hard behind the scenes compiling new music, preparing the layout and designing the cover art for MidnightRadio Compilation 14 which was released and available for download online last week.   MRC14 treats us to a new treasure trove of exciting, eclectic tracks ranging from the beautiful Unseelie’s “Le Printemps de Desdémon”, to the calming ambience of Experiments in Silence’s “Prospect of Light” and the slow, rhythmic industrial drone of Kiew-Aspirin-N’s “Der Tod fährt mit”, just to name a few artists on this exquisite compilation.  In keeping with the esthetic of the project, the sound quality of each track is professionally recorded and the cover art minimal and intriguing!

In the meantime, here are my Top 5 fave artists from MRC 14.

Escaped Trees – Winter returned to her home (Moscow)

Jesper Sorenson - StarFlight One (Denmark)

Eisenlager - One Laptop per Child (Germany)

Alexis Voice - Liquid (Hungary)
