Philippe Pallafray will exhibit in a duo show Darby-Pallafray at the Salle Jean Paul-Lemieux at the Etienne-Parent Library, 3515 rue Clemenceau, in Quebec City in January. The show opens Thurs. January 18, 2018 with a reception at 5:30 pm. Sponsored by the Ville de Québec and the Société d’art et d’histoire de Beauport the exhibition brings together two artists who “cut, ply, assemble and solder metal to create sculptures marked by the footprints of time.” Exhibition literature describes the work to be exhibited:
“Pallfray integrates artificial intelligence and sometimes leaves in what seems an inescapable transformation, voids that point to an ultimate absence.”
Philippe Pallafray (b. 1965, France) is a member of the Sculptors Society of Canada and of the Conseil des métiers d'art du Québec. He worked for 15 years in fine arts before immigrating to Canada. In 2005, he established a studio on Île d'Orléans, Québec. Pallafray integrates polished stainless steel with natural and man-made materials to create provocative indoor and outdoor sculptures.
Pallafray has exhibited in the US, France and Canada at the John B. Aird Gallery, the Artist Project Toronto, Alliance Française de Toronto and the McMichael Canadian Collection. In 2016, he was artist-in-residence at Saint-Georges de Beauce, where he was commissioned to create the sculpture Aquagraphie. Pallafray’s work is held in private and public collections in North America and France.
Pallafray is represented exclusively by Oeno Gallery.
