By France Gascon, Jocelyne Lupien and Thomas Corriveau

This thematic look at the work of the Ottawa based artist, aptly entitled Attractions, focuses on the duality of both the medium (painting on photography) and the message (the desire to change our way of seeing). Colourful and seemingly playful with a large place given to portraiture, the works attract our gaze, but once held, our perception inevitably changes because of the singular techniques employed. Having followed the evolution of Corriveau’s work since the 1980s, Lupien provides an astute reading of the artist’s ability to take the precise results of photography and fictionalize them through brushwork. Corriveau himself writes about his unusual role as painter-photographer.
