Fast Reverse Polychromatic Liquid Lines Modulator (FRPLLM)
Toronto Art Fair 2017, Solo show within a group show, Luis De Jesus Gallery, Canada
Edie Beaucage created a series of paintings specifically for the Toronto Fair. In this group of paintings, her characters are having relationships exclusively "via" technology.
In "You know Dax Too?" we find three mustached man on FaceTime, in"What's Ur Snap" a group of friends in the woods exchanging snap chat information, for "Scotch and Sofa" a computer on Netflix is set on a living room table by a pair of boots: its movie night at home.These characters are all relating to one another using technology but they seem themsleves to be from another time period. Is this what the future will look like? Are we always going to be on our phones, watching videos and chating via cell? It does look like us today.
Observing the paintings; it feels as if you where looking through a pair of quantum-multicolors-night-vision-goggles.The paintings dark impastoed grounds are supporting amalgams of fine liquid paint lines that build’s up the images; making fancy pants, funky boots, background horse, inhabited cell phones, pink rocks and pale blue trees… Beaucage is distributing and pushing the paint around with a quick, steady yet vibrating and upbeat syringe. It is Beaucage first exhibition in Canada.
