Catalogue Note

“You have to become the motor before you can really know how to drive. And in painting? In painting, it’s no different: you have to become the canvas as it takes shape” (Jean-Paul Riopelle in conversation with Gilbert Erouart, in: Fernand Séguin, Jean-Paul Riopelle and Gilbert Erouart, Eds., Riopelle in Conversation, Canada 1995, p. 13).
