Guido Molinari

Molinari et la couleur
Dec. 10, 2008 to Jan. 24, 2009

The exhibition Guido Molinari and Colour: Paintings 1954–1999 brings together some twenty works on canvas and paper, most of them rarely exhibited publicly until now because they are part of the artist’s estate. This exhibition puts the spotlight on the unique pictorial vocabulary Molinari developed over the course of his prolific career, explains Simon Blais, founder and director of Galerie Simon Blais in Montréal. Throughout his life, this artist demonstrated a profound commitment to a Québec brand of abstract painting that we wished to celebrate with this wonderful exhibition, he adds. In conjunction with the exhibition, Éditions Simon Blais has also published a new monograph on Guido Molinari that features contributions by Gilles Daigneault, Director of the Molinari Foundation, and Marie-Eve Beaupré, an art historian, as well as reproductions of all the works on show at the gallery.
