Currently at The Belgo Building

Posted by Denis / May 8, 2007

20070507_Daigneault.jpgFirst up among the awesome exhibitions currently showing at the Belgo Building is Montreal-born abstract painter Michel Daigneault at Galerie Trois Points (room 520). The press release touts Daigneault as ‘one of a generation of new abstract painters that came after Abstract Painting’ and goes on to state how Daigneault’s work reveals ‘new pictorial possibilities’.

While I thought that relatively similar visual elements are being used by big-time artists such as Matthew Ritchie and Franz Ackermann, Daigneault’s work is certainly worth the detour if you're in the neighbourhood. Fun, playful, challenging and just plain beautiful (once thought a crime in contemporary painting!) – exactly the kind of abstracts I like.

20070507_Chris Kline.jpgEqually challenging is the ghostly work of painter Chris Kline, (no, not the cheeseball actor who dated Katie Holmes - this guy has actual talent, and lots of it) on display at Galerie René Blouin (room 501).

Using thin, untreated cotton surfaces through which the stretcher frames are still slightly visible, Kline haunting works reference traditional minimalism with a Rothko-like reference to a ‘poetic landscape’ that is simply beautiful. It,s on until May 12th.

All three galleries are open Wednesday to Saturday, from 12pm to 5pm in the Belgo Building at 372 Sainte-Catherine West.
