About the Program

Claude Perreault's large collage installations deal with pop culture icons as the commodities of current consumer society and their influence on us all, drawing parallels with Catholic iconography that is satirical and insightful. His use of the media of collage is truly astounding, painting with colour photography from pornographic magazines. His subjects, Michael Jackson, Princess Diana, OJ Simpson et al, are revealed against classical representations that are 'over the top.' Ornate to the point of gaudy, the works appropriate classical and ecclesiastic imagery revealing our societys fascination with icons. Perrault is a Montreal-based artist who has shown extensively in Quebec. This will be his first show in Vancouver.
