GUY LARAMÉE

Guy Laramée’s artistic practice revolves around his interest in the quest for both transcendence, and presence in the current moment. His oil paintings depict natural vistas, often lush or shrouded in fog, evocative yet without guise. Softly rendered, there is a distance between the viewer and his tranquil landscapes. The artist’s carved book sculptures are worlds unto themselves. Choosing books that may have become obsolete such as antique encyclopedias, Laramée creates highly detailed scenes of mountains, hillsides, lakes, and hidden doorways, all carved into the pages of the texts he begins with. Subtly painted, the sculptures look more like uncovered secret places than created moments. 

Laramée received an MA with distinction from the Université du Québec à Montréal, QC, and an MA and BFA with great distinction from Concordia University, Montréal, QC. His work has been shown across North America including at Bellevue Art Museum, Bellevue, WA, Museum of Art and Design, New York, NY, Albuquerque Museum, Albuquerque, NM, Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT, Whatcom Museum, Bellingham, WA, and Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec, Québec City, QC. He has been written about extensively, and is featured in over 14 books and dozens of publications. Laramée’s work is in the art collections of such prestigious institutions as Messner Mountain Museum, Bolzano, Italy, Museum of Art and Design, New York, NY, and Cameron Art Museum, Wilmington, NC.
