Mesmerizing Matters, group show presented at Lilian Rodriguez Gallery in Montreal in 2013

While the last decade witnessed the emergence of new conceptual art practices, recent artistic approaches demonstrate the rebirth of an interest towards the questions of materiality. Indeed, many emerging artists choose to make the material their own again, through its textures, colors, characteristics, diversity, and potential symbolic. These artists’ work showcases a grand quality, sometimes distinguished by the use of more traditional processes, or craft. – Réal Lussier
