Galerie Lacerte art contemporain (Quebec) is pleased to present Gloire des roses sablons – a selection of recent works by the artist Elysanne Tremblay.

All of Elysanne Tremblay’s work is dedicated to creating an environment where she takes pleasure in imagining the development of all forms of life. But why try to animate the inanimate when there is already a living nature? In recognition of it.” The idea that art is the mirror of nature is one that only appeals to periods of skepticism. Art does not imitate nature, it imitates creation, sometimes to propose another world other than the real world, sometimes simply to amplify, to confirm, to bring into society the brief hope offered by nature ” [1]. The exceptional arises from fascination, from admiration. The work of the artist is not exceptional, it is the gesture; ” Gesture of the child who ricochets to transform the surface of the water, that of the” natural “appearances, on the surface of manifestation of his only will ” [2].


Elysanne Tremblay has an absolute admiration for any object resulting from an overflow of excesses and intensifications. For her, art is a means used to show our excesses of color, our strength and our ability to confront the world. In this exhibition proposal, the artist wishes to display his excess colors as in a parade of intimidation. Gloire des roses sablons is a territory, a space where Elysanne Tremblay ” represents the future and the foregoing in order to gather the sensations to come, a people to come, worlds and universes to come ” [3].
