This year, I decided to do a duo exhibition with Claude Landry, a Montreal artist that I got to know better over the last couple of years through weekly Tai Chi classes in the West Island of Montreal. Merci Claude for your partnership!
As usual, the installation part went like a breeze owing to two former "Princesses of the Nile" (a troop of baladi dancers): Nicole ( my so-called "muse") and Rita.They both participated in my two previous shows in this venue, so they are quite experienced! Their creativity is handy when it comes to the placement of paintings.
In 2010, I used two female models for my series on Yoga and women's eyes (the two middle upper pictures in this collage, Geneviève and Val). Beyond the inspiration that they provided me, they nicely complemented our efforts to diffuse any pertinent information about our planned exhibition. It appears that our synergy as a team was perfect since close to 100 people showed up at the vernissage!
Barrie McCleod , a successful fashion photographer from Montreal and a friend of Claude Landry, was nice enough to make himself available during a good part of the evening. His photographic record stands out to say the least (this is but a very partial selection)....
