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.
