The Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke in Québec, from the 14th of September 2013 to the 19th of
January 2014, will be exhibiting 15 large scale paintings by Peter Krausz.
In 1969, Peter Krausz, then in his early twenties, secretly left his native Rumania.  For more than forty years, the flight towards the unknown has continued to nourish the reflections of the artist.  The landscapes which inspire him are those marked by history, conflict, and war.  He transforms and elevates them, turning them into spaces halfway between the real and the imaginary.  His painting is colourful and luxuriant.  The artist particularly enjoys the clear luminosity of dawn, the warm colours of the afternoon, and the violet tones of the sunset which he paints using the ancient al secco technique.

This survey show of Pierre Coupey’s work, featuring some 40 key paintings on canvas and paper, presents a snapshot of his practice from 1976 to the present. Selected by curators Darrin Morrison for the West Vancouver Museum and Astrid Heyerdahl for the Art Gallery at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam, these concurrent exhibitions span four decades of the artist’s work and reveal a number of his themes and concerns, from the public realm of geo-political conflict to the cosmological realm of poetry and literature. In these two exhibitions the curators present a close-up look at Coupey’s trajectory as a painter, and on the consequences –– the contradictions and tensions deeply embedded in his abstract canvasses –– of his decision to obey, however ironically, metaphorically, Matisse’s impossible admonition in Jazz to “cut out the tongue” and paint.

The exhibitions are accompanied by a full colour catalogue with an essay by Lary Timewell Bremner.

James Nizam has been commissioned by the fashion powerhouse label Louis Vuitton to produce works, as inspired by his 2006/2007 Anteroom series, whereby Nizam inverted and projected exterior environments into abandoned rooms. The LV Canadian Maison in Toronto, whose mandate is to showcase Canadian art, will display these commissioned pieces as part of the permanent installation.
