Robert Lemay
JONI SHOWPIECE
RL074
oil, canvas
12" x 10"
 
GLOBALLY INFLUENTIAL CANADIAN ICON. ONE OF THE FUN THINGS AGBOUT RESEARCHING THIS PROJECT WAS FINDING OLD FOOTAGE ON YOUTUBE. THIS IS A SLIGHTLY LATE, SEVENTIES JONI, I THINK. NONE OF THESE PAINTINGS WOULD BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE INTERNET, WHICH IS ONE REASON I TRY TO REPRESENT THEIR DIGITAL SOURCE WITH THE GRID. 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.
