Quebec artist Paul Béliveau paints culturally significant artifacts such as his own book collection, creating ‘pictorial archeology’ in work that references a database of thousands of personal and historical photographs.
Béliveau says, “I like to use painted books as a strategy against loss, even though worn books evoke the passage of time and reveal one’s own finiteness.” –Winsor Gallery, Vancouver
