Benoit Blondeau

Originally from Quebec City, Benoit Blondeau works with recycled materials, whether solid, pigment or textiles. Fabrics and patterns play an important role in his art, both materially and emotionally, as they often recall visits to the fair, his grandmother’s quilts or the psychedelic sheets he slept in as a child. The fabrics add a layer of movement and vibration, and offer a materiality that differs from paint. The art he makes does not reproduce the visible; rather, it renders visions or ghosts of the body sentient.
