Cette œuvre s’inscrit dans une série de dessins à l’encre faits à partir de captures d’écran de Google Earth. C’est la vue qu’on aurait si on pouvait voir à travers les murs de mon ancien atelier du 5445, avenue de Gaspé. En me servant d’une gamme de lavis, je me suis appliqué à recréer la version Google Earth de l’endroit où j’étais quand je faisais ce dessin. Tout y est, jusqu’aux distorsions photographiques, aux contours tordus et au bruit numérique.

Matt Shane makes paintings, drawings, and room-sized collaborative installations that are anchored in the realm of landscape. His pictorial worlds follow a Romantic lineage, but arrive at a mercurial ground, at the border of wilderness and civilization, perception and fantasy.
Shane obtained a BFA from the University of Victoria and an MFA from Concordia University in 2013. He has received numerous grants and awards and has co-organized seventeen massive collaborative drawing installations alongside his best friend, Jim Holyoak. He has toured widely and done residencies and had exhibitions on three continents. His most recent collaborative work was shown as part of Manif d’art 9 at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec. Shane’s work can be found in the collections of the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Caisse Populaire Desjardins, Bank of Montreal, and many others. He teaches drawing and painting at Dawson College in Montréal.
