Untitled / Sans titre
Montreal / Montréal, QC — linocut / gravure sur linoléum — 1973
This pop landscape renders the rolling treeline separation of plots of agricultural land, a landscape as much human as natural. Here it is reduced to the bare minimum of land, trees, and sky, a perfect subject for the medium of linocut.
Fernand Bergeron was an artist best known for his series of lithographs called Tour l’oignon. He was born and raised in Montreal and lived there primarily until his death in 1992.
Ce paysage pop illustre la limite entre la forêt et les terres agricoles, un paysage tant humain que naturel. Ici, on n’y voit que des terres, des arbres et le ciel, un sujet parfait pour la linogravure.
