Rochelle Mayer presents her metro paintings at Maison de la Culture Mercier

La maison de la culture Mercier, 8105 Hochelaga Street, in Montreal
presents Dans le métro, prise 2, a solo exhibition of mixed media works, paintings and estampes of Montreal artist Rochelle Mayer from December 4, 2010 to January 16, 2011
Meetings with the artist on Sunday December 5th from 1 pm and Friday December 17th at 7 pm

THE EXHIBITION WILL BE CLOSED DURING THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS, FROM DECEMBER 18TH, REOPENING ON JANUARY 4TH.

Montreal artist Rochelle Mayer has been exploring and sketching the universe of the Montreal metro for over three years. This urban space fascinates her. Its dark tunnels, platforms and wide waiting spaces, along with the speeding trains, the movements of the people, the attitudes of the passengers in the trains, the graffitis and rubish, all serve as base materials for her quick sketches.

The artist reexamines these sketches in her studio, and along with her imagination and the juxtaposition of figurative and abstract elements, collages and transfers she creates narrative images which she works spontaneously on mylar film, or via small studies which serve as a basis to establish the composition, the choice of medium and the atmosphere that she wants to render.

More than 40 mixed media works, paintings, estampes will be on view, along with the artist's sketchbooks and small studies.
