After exploring several paths, Jean Gaudreau opts for the non-figurative form, a demanding discipline that was then appreciated only by a restricted public. But his unshakeable resolve allows him to persist and follow through with his artistic approach.
In February 2003, after a few individual exhibitions in several art galleries everywhere in Quebec as well as outside the province, Gaudreau is invited to present a solo exhibit in the Cirque du Soleil’s location in Montreal. This magical venue attracts a large umber of visitors and the event marks the beginning of a collaboration with the Cirque.
Selected for the 2009 and 2010 editions of the Moulin à images.
The years 2009 and 2010 underline another important turning point in Jean Gaudreau’s life. During that time Robert Lepage expresses his interest in projecting works from the painter in the Moulin à images’ presentation. Gaudreau shares the honour with pillars of Quebec’s art such as Jean-Paul Lemieux, Alfred Pellan and Jean-Paul Riopelle.
This participation to the Moulin à images earns him an international exposure since his artworks projected on grain silos located in Quebec City’s old port, will be seen by thousands of spectators.
In the spring of 2010, the artist launches the exhibition Le pied au plancher, thus inaugurating the Banque Nationale Groupe financier’s room at the Palais Montcalm. Quebec City’s mayor, Régis Labeaume, is the honorary president of this event that enjoys a great media exposure. In his speech, Gaudreau underlines the importance of creating new venues for the diffusion of artists’ work.
