Carlos Ste-Marie

His paintings, little elegiac bestiaries, are reflections on shelter and the increasingly fragile environment for species now seen as « refugees ». The representation of alienations between living beings and their habitats, as we see it in his paintings, illustrates how shelter sometimes become a prison, a restraint of life itself.

While revealing environmental concerns, the paintings create a necessary dialogue between humans and animals. By the choice of strategic imagery, the painter depicts a Quebec identity and set this dialogue very close to home. The exhibition itself becomes a collective self-portrait. This iconographic familiarity encourages the travel through the art and universe of Carlos Ste-Marie.
