Guy Laramée

My work originates from the feeling that ultimate knowledge could very well be an erosion instead of an accumulation. The title of one of my pieces is “All Ideas Look Alike”. I want to examine thinking, not only “what” we think, but “that” we think. I want us back to this sense of “presence” , beyond emotions and concepts.

So I carve landscapes out of books, I paint romantic landscapes and build dioramas. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS. Fogs and clouds erase everything we know, everything we think we are.
