Gabriel Rioux, Solo

January 11 - Jan 27, 2020

Archive Contemporary presents the first solo exhibition of Gabriel Rioux, an emerging artist based in Montreal. His mixed media paintings are heavily influenced by an academic background in literature and philosophy, as well as the artist's observations of every day life. Through his paintings, Rioux is building a visual language of symbolism that fluctuates between obscurity, abstraction and revelation "Emerging Quebec painter Gabriel Rioux defies our perception of time, space and the constraints of inner knowledge. His harmonious, yet visually tense paintings offer us a meticulously codified window into the artist’s imagination and subconscious mind. Rioux’s intuitive works, full of symbolism, present an almost canonical composition of spaces delineated by a neat line and a subtle change of shade.”

Opening reception: Saturday Jan 11, 2-6 PM
