Art exhibit in Côte Saint-Luc highlights re-imagined landscapes

Suzanne Olivier: A Singular VisionCôte Saint-Luc, May 4, 2012 – The Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library is presenting a series of large-scale oil paintings of landscapes by Quebec artist Suzanne Olivier seen through her unique perspective.

A Singular Vision/Une vision particulière art exhibit runs from May 10 to June 24, 2012 at the Art Gallery of the library, 5851 Cavendish Blvd.

“As my pictorial personality developed and my search intensified during my years at the Beaux-Arts in Montreal, I returned to and continued this movement and manner of painting, suggesting elements of nature on my canvas,” Olivier said. “This new approach transformed my work into imaginary landscapes, liberated from tradition and representation.”

Olivier is often associated with the impressionist movement due to her use of soft brush strokes and colour palette. However, having grown up under the influence of the automatist art movement in Quebec, she was heavily influenced by such internationally-renowned Quebec abstract artists as Paul-Émile Borduas.
