Galerie C.O.A is proud to celebrate Eric Godin’s 35-year career with a solo show. Godin’s work never stops evolving while delivering a steady deeply touching signature, whichever art he chooses to explore as an editorial cartoonist, painter, sculptor, writer or illustrator.
Through different mediums and ideals, all the artists here exposed express a common desire to change perceptions, morals or any established fact. Figures and silhouettes represent a necessary transition if not in progress. Objects lose their first aesthetic function to challenge preconceived ideas. Works that need to be contemplated, to see in each movement a breach revealing what they read.
Eric Nado lives and works in Montreal. For 20 years, he has collected, deconstructed and reassembled industrial objects in series. Each of the resulting sculptures is a true technical exploration. His concern for skills and performance always comes with a common thread to the artist’s work: the storytelling of our collective past through the creation of evocative works.
Curated by two women, the exhibition "Crafty Cunts" is a meeting between fine art and craft, crossing historical and contemporary imagery.
