JACQUES HURTUBISE "TWIGGY" SILKSCREEN, 1967
Jacques Hurtubise (1939-2014) was a pivotal figure in the post-Riopelle generation of artists in Quebec.
Hurtubise studied at the École des beaux-arts de Montréal and after graduation had an eight month séjour in New York City (after winning a Max Beckman scholarship). It was 1960/61 and the influence of the Abstract Expressionists, especially DeKooning, made a huge impact on his aesthetic and process.
Upon his return to Quebec, at the young age of 21, he was feted with a solo exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Arts. During the 60's Hurtubise achieved significant awards and accolades. His success can be attributed to the fact that his creations alluded conforming to any of the expectations of the emerging aesthetic genres of the 1960's - they are not exactly Op art, nor Pop and too dynamic or irreverent to fit perfectly amongst the Plasticiens.
Renowned for boldly colored hard-edged abstractions, this Hurtubise silkscreen is a paradigm of his oeuvre.
