Description

Two painted canvases are layered. The top layer is cut to expose the contrasting painting beneath. Here, Bourque-LaFrance repurposes the aggressive cuts of Fontana and Burri to play with composition, function, and narrative within his collaged abstractions.The holes act as portals to the inside of the painting, exposing collage elements and compositional tensions that are both sophisticated and cartoon-like.
