I am pleased to announce my participation in the Artsida 8 auction, as a new and unique artwork on paper of mine, titled "Devenir Immortel", will be auctioned on Sunday March 11th at Place des Arts' Salon Urbain.
New works on paper
Having worked in recent months on new types of work, I am particularly thrilled to finally unveil and offer you a first glimpse of my brand new series... on paper!
The unique texture of this artwork was shaped by applying several layers of walnut oil paint on Arches paper with a painting knife, and carved to form a series of small parallel vertical slats covering all of its surface, similar to furrows of vinyl records.
Artsida aims to raise funds for Sida Bénévoles Montréal (ACCM), a volunteer-based community organization with a mandate to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV/AIDS, prevent HIV transmission, as well as increase public awareness and engagement.
Coming back for an eagerly awaited eighth edition, Artsida has earned a special place in the calendar of social events for art lovers and philanthropists who want to make things better in the community. The auction is adopting this year a new formula and a new direction that will allow it to establish its reputation as a key event on the Montreal cultural scene. The exceptional works of renowned artists and emerging artists will introduce you to a captivating art and will tell you more about an important cause.
Juno Youn, Founder and Director of Galerie Youn, was named Honorary Co-Chair for this edition along with Earl Pinchuk, Co-Founder of the Art for Healing Foundation.
