Robert Lemay
GORDIE SHOWPIECE
RL072
oil, canvas
20" x 16"
 
NOTHING 'QUINTESSENTIALLY CANADIAN' COULD AVOID HOCKEY. I LIKE THE PENSIVE, UNPOSED FEELING OF THIS IMAGE. THE MODESTY AND HARD WORK OF THE PLAYERS BEFORE LARGE SALARIES AND IMAGE CONSULTANTS COMES THROUGH, EXEMPLIFIED BY THE DENTS ON HIS NOSE. Lemay’s work combines the imagery of fashion magazines with the techniques of the masters to create a style he calls Pop Realism, reinvigorating figure painting with an exploration of modern fashion and celebrity culture. Uniquely, the artist divides the canvas into a grid, painting square by square, row by row to create a subtly digitized effect which is completely hand-painted. All works are oil on canvas.
