October 17 to November 15, 2009 > Eveline Boulva : On the road, between cleared land and woods (Sur la route entre sarts et bois). Located mid-way between drawing, painting and mapmaking, Eveline Boulva’s current works investigate the concept of landscape.
Through this project, Eveline Boulva seeks to enter more deeply into the subject that drives her work –landscape –; to get more specific about the notion of territory by introducing industrial cities like Baie-Comeau and the omnipresent forest typical of the North Shore into her works; and to create a formal relationship between the shaky line of drawing, cartographic recesses and the fragility or remoteness inherent in the places she depicts.

Her personal reappropriation of the territories explored give us both a contemporary and original vision of landscape.
