By Gilles Daigneault

A major publication on a Canadian artist of international stature. Elegantly produced with numerous colour plates, this oversized limited edition documents 25 years of the Montréal artist’s unique painterly œuvre. Robert writes on her paintings. She installs this writing in contradiction or in sync with the pictorial space that hosts and integrates it. Be they legible or illegible, gaudy or subliminal, true or false, the words are the raw materiel of her work – yet she advises us not to read them. Louise Robert has exhibited at the Foire international de l’Art Contemporain (Paris), Art Toronto, Art Miami as well as in many independent galleries here and abroad.
