Heffel Auction House Biography and Notes

In Montreal in 1955, Jean-Paul Jérôme, Fernand Toupin, Louis Belzile and Rodolphe (Jauran) de Repentigny mounted a show of their work at a small restaurant, calling themselves Plasticiens and publishing a manifesto. They built on the ideas of Piet Mondrian, whom they revered, creating hard-edged, geometric abstractions. They claimed to have no connection to anything visible in the world of appearances, nor to using representational space in any way. They worked with "the plastic elements" of line, colour, shape and texture, and sought to depict perfect form in perfect order, citing machines that worked flawlessly only when everything was in place as a metaphor for their work. If one small part were out of alignment, misshapen or discordant, the machine would fail. Grids and circles, lines in parallel and triangles in harmony figure prominently in their work, especially that of Jérôme. He would continue to work in this same mode throughout his career, returning somewhat to real-world sources in the latter part of his life. Le cosmorama ciel is from a series inspired by the stained-glass windows of churches and cathedrals.
