by Robin Laurence

Evincing the early influence of Paterson Ewen, Montreal artist Yechel Gagnon employs sculpted, painted and layered plywood forms to create seemingly abstract pictures that suggest both aerial-view landscapes and interior states of mind. Gagnon’s oeuvre also encompasses embossed prints, frottage drawings, cast aluminum sculptures and architectural installations. Among sources and influences she names traditional Chinese painting, Abstract Expressionism and the contemporary French artist Fabienne Verdier.
