A series of works depicting quintessential Montréal themes and subject from classic industrial sites to the city’s pop icons. By focusing on man-made environments, industrial heritage and urban landscapes, the suggested iconography is mainly dominated by representations of Montréal’s urban environment.
His work as a visual artist is punctuated by collages of photographs that are representative of his every-day life. With a clear resonance of industrial architecture, Montréal is present in the artistic corpus of Gosselin’s work where certain city landmarks of heritage areas and abandoned buildings are easily recognizable. Although many subjects appear rather static upon first glance, the vivacity of landscapes appear often in his paintings. Whatever the subject and the privileged medium, his works possess a curious power to reveal the process by which by which they are fashioned together, instead of relying on other traditional forms of representation.
Originally from Lanaudière, Marc Gosselin lives and works in Montreal. After having evolved for many years in the field of fashion and visual presentation, this artist now focuses on his work as a visual artist. Active since 2010, Gosselin has participated in various group and individual exhibitions.
Vernissage is on April 26th.
