Artist's interpretation of the work:

The overlapping of red and blue sandstone creates a world of contrast, nuance and elegance. When the sea rises up and licks these stones asleep in the sun, brilliant colors burst forth! The extraordinarily clear water teases the stone, then recedes momentarily, breathing new life into these salmon-colored stones. The wave spreads out like a net, catching the sun's rays and transforming into a fine lace of light. A work for meditation that shows us that the wonders of our world are often at our feet.

  • As an artist and committed environmentalist, Bédard creates exclusively with materials from nature, exploring the variables of an intimate geography that feeds on his sense of belonging to the territory.

    For the past decade, he has traveled the shores of the St. Lawrence and its estuary, an emblematic place par excellence that has nourished the Quebecois imagination, to capture its essence. Using the shapes and textures captured on his coastline, the artist-photographer creates imaginary spaces, a kind of metaphor for the ties that humans maintain with their territory.

    His work is divided into several series, each characterized by an original visual treatment. They evolve from micro-landscapes to digital collages evoking totemic figures or primitive deities, then turn to the fusion of several images to create a surreal or symbolic world. His vision is poetic and holistic, and his practice seeks to build bridges between nature and humanity. He invites us to transform our gaze from the narrative of human domination over nature to that of a collaborative nature of which human beings are as much a part as all other living beings.
