Quintessence by Eric Robitaille at Decorazon

Monday, July 8th, 2019

Quintessence is referred to as the fifth sense, and is the title of Eric Robitaille’s exhibition at DECORAZON NYC.  Celebrating the idea of beauty in its purest form, Robitaille demonstrates a unique combination of vibrant realism and modern abstract.

ERIC ROBITAILLE demonstrates a unique combination of vibrant realism and modern abstract. Building each painting using a very complex construction of high quality detailing and layers, the artist allows a large space for abstract process and flow. Eric Robitaille is a self-taught contemporary artist from Montreal, Quebec. He has shown works in several exhibitions across Canada, and is currently represented by galleries in Quebec and Ontario. He also enjoys meeting art buyers personally through independent fairs.

A contemporary artist from Montreal, Quebec, Eric Robitaille has a graphic design and illustration background.
Diverse animal and plant life play a large role in his recent series, primarily to symbolize human behavior and life mechanics. His animal subjects display human characteristics and virtues, while carrying messages of “being your best self”.

Through many years of experimentation, Eric Robitaille’s style has evolved from hyper-realism to a unique mixture of abstraction and surrealism. The distinctive integration of contrasting elements, graphic text, colours and layers result in creations that are visually intriguing and dynamic, but above all communicate to perfection the story and significance of each piece.

Exhibition on View: June 27 – August 24, 2019
