Last month, Eloi Desjardins from Un Show de Mot’Arts and I got together to talk about Sylvain Bouthillette‘s 15 Hertz exhibit at Galerie Trois Points, L’Art du Style at Les Ailes de la Mode, The New Sculpture Garden at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Beyond Photorealism at Galerie de Bellefeuille.
It occurred to me recently there is a phenomenal amount of art that is accessible to the public (as opposed to public art) on and around Greene Avenue in Westmount.
I’m not quite certain what ghosts and clouds have to do with things that are erotic, but there was a fuss over the display of cartoon genitalia, and the ghosts and clouds were added to give a sense of modesty.
I’m surprised that no one complained about the bondage…
Sorry about the glare, but I wasn’t brave enough to enter into Westmount Square in order to take pictures. There’s another one in one of the other towers, but my pictures were horrible. If you’d like a better picture, try this.
Wars, and war memorials were much different then. There are 192 names on it from World War I, which lasted four years. And 260 names from World War II, which lasted six years. The Canadian Army has been fighting in Afghanistan for almost ten years, and I can guarantee you that there will not be any additional names added.
The less said about this, the better. I’m not sure what I was thinking when I took so many pictures.
If anyone knows any details, or has any information about the photographer, title or why, I would be extremely appreciative.
Since I was talking about licensing images yesterday, I figured it would dovetail nicely with these three images…
Last week I was walking along Greene Avenue when I saw these magnificent paintings in the window of the Galerie de Bellefeuille. While I don’t think there is a patent on spraying diamond dust on silkscreen prints, I would bet dollars to doughnuts that Russell Young is not paying any royalties to the Michael Ochs Archives or Getty Images for his use of their photograph. (Which if I did the drop down boxes properly would cost somewhere around $600)
And while I’m not entirely certain (after all I did take a crappy and blurry picture) but it certainly does look like a painting of Tintin, and again I would bet dollars to doughnuts (Tim Horton’s even!) that someone forgot to cut a check to Paramount Pictures for their royalties…
