Susan G. Scott: Les Enfants Terribles
Opening: Friday, 15 October at 6:00 pm
Montreal-based artist Susan G. Scott’s narrative paintings and drawings in this exhibition use Jean Cocteau’s novel Les Enfants Terribles as a point of departure. For over twenty years, Scott’s figurative paintings have examined the body language that acts as an unwritten text for social contracts, and her subjects’ often semi-conscious awareness of transgressing these contracts. For this exhibition, which is organized and circulated by the Galerie McClure / Centre des arts visuels in Montreal, Scott sketches figures directly on the wall in relation to previously painted canvases.
