POISSON ROUGE

POISSON ROUGE – 60” x 48”

I thoroughly enjoyed creating this painting…so many items that remind me of my childhood, such as my mother’s favourite chocolate treat, Cherry Blossom, Labatt beer, my uncles’ preferred beverage (uncles on my father’s side), Orange Crush, the Radio-Canada emblem, etc. I also included a sample of Quebec cartoonist Michel Rabagliati’s work, a photo of a rather sexy woman, Montreal’s former mayor Jean Drapeau and an article dating back to 1970 when Montreal was bidding for the ‘76 Olympic games, the logo of our hockey team, the Canadiens, etc.

Texture created with articles from burlap, French porn magazine from the ‘70s, swatches from my mother-in-law and plaster.
