Movement and suspension; big and small; figurative and abstract—Montreal artist Richard Deschênes newest series, Reproductions, creates poetry in opposition.

“In general all of my work is like the opposition between movement and suspended action. It’s about time, scale, and the process of how to build an image,” says Deschênes.

Although a mix of large 7×9 foot paintings and other smaller works, Deschênes also used small found images and blew them up to a obscurely large scale. Most of the images are from an old encyclopedia collection. Deschênes enlarged images that were two inches big to as three to five feet.
