MADELEINE LAMONT : Effloresce


  • Christine Klassen Gallery 321 50 Avenue Southeast, Unit 200 Calgary, AB, T2G 2B3 Canada (map)

RECEPTION: SATURDAY MAY 11, 1-4 PM
ARTIST TALKS at 2 PM


Celebrated for her exquisite and contemporary take on the Dutch tradition of botanical illustration, MADELEINE LAMONT conveys a sense of urgency with her expressive floral paintings on mylar. Her fervid brush strokes and gestural sketches combine to capture the moment of utmost beauty before the inevitable decay, calling to mind notions of growth and joy alongside death and loss.

Madeleine Lamont is Toronto-based artist whose work has been widely exhibited and collected for almost three decades. She has had an instrumental role in the development of the art community, serving as a founding member of Farrago and The House Project, and member of The Red Head Gallery.
